Marie-Claire and Pierre Fort consider themselves as 'peasant wine makers'. They cultivate the 4 hectares of the family property near Roquetaillade (400m in altitude overlooking Limoux in the western part of the Aude département). They are keen to master every aspect of their craft from the vineyard to the cellar. Working in harmony with nature, their soils are rich in living organisms and organic matter, a factor which contributes to the natural ripening of the domaine's vines and the richness of the wines.
The altitude and exposure of the vines on northern slopes, swept by the 'Cers' wind from the north and the 'Marin' wind from the south-east, enable the progressive ripening of grapes, developing wines which are pleasantly fresh with an interesting mineral texture deriving from the chalk soils.
