Of all the southern French terroirs, the Limoux region – at the Languedoc’s western extremity – has those that are best suited to the making of quality Chardonnay. The freshness and humidity of the Atlantic influence attenuates the heat of the Mediterranean climate. The foothills of the Pyrenees give the landscape its relief, forming slopes and valleys. It’s at the heart of this excellent terroir that Jacques Abet is lucky enough to grow, tend and cherish Cassagnau’s plot of Chardonnay, called “Le Verger” – the fruit orchard. In times gone by, it was the site of a mediaeval hamlet, which was inhabited from the fifth to the thirteenth century, as evidenced by certain remains uncovered during my viticultural labours.
