Another addition to our summer portfolio is Château Pech Latt, a beautiful estate located near Lagrasse, in the heart of the Corbières appellation, in Languedoc Roussillon, South of France. The vineyard has been cultivated in organic farming since 1991. The estate spreads over 340 hectares, encircled by hills at the foot of the Alaric mountains. These calcareous and red marl hills create a natural shelter offering protection from weather changes. Incidentally, the name Pech Latt comes from this particular environment: Pech means "top of a hill” and Latt, from the Latin Latum, which means "large”. The first vines, planted by the monks from the Lagrasse Abbey that was founded by Charlemagne, can be traced back to 784. We've chosen their AOC Corbières blanc (a delightful marsanne) and rouge (a blend of Grenache, Carignan, Syrah and Mouvedre) to complement our list. Ask one of our consultants if you'd like to have a look.
