Details

Located near Cruscades on a hill near the village, the Château Coulon is owned by the Fabre family. It is next to the Via Aquitania, a roman way linking the Mediterranean sea to the Atlantic along which a succession of inns and hostels enabled travellers to rest and change their horses. During deep ploughing undertaken in 1947 eight large jars were extracted, once used to keep oil, wheet and wine. Situated twenty kilometres from the Mediterranean sea, the Château Coulon-Veredus is protected from humid sea winds by the Fontfroide hill range. The dominant wind called the 'Cers' blows more than 200 days a year and follows the profile of the Alaric mountain, a summit culminating at 600m above the Aude river valley. This fresh, dry wind prevents mildew from attacking cultures, preventing its development in the vineyards. The Cruscades terroir is characterised by a warm, dry climate. The vineyards of Château Coulon-Veredus have never been treated with weed killers, nor with synthetic fungicides and the property was certified for its organic culture by Ecocert in 1992.
