Château de la Soujeole : ecological transmission of a family heritage
Château la Soujeole : The Plenitude
Located not far from the medieval city of Carcassonne, Château de la Soujeole enjoys an extraordinary location. The atypical and confidential terroir of the Malepère benefits from both Mediterranean and oceanic influences from the west.
The beauty and purity of the place convinced Gérard Bertrand in 2013 to cultivate the vines according to the principles of Biodynamics: respect for nature and the life of the soil, no use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers, etc.
In order to find the perfect balance between the mineral, vegetable and animal worlds, the plots are cultivated and ploughed with the help of the mule. Animal traction, unlike mechanical traction, does not compact the soil, allowing it to breathe, for a richer soil life!
The extraordinary terroir of the Malepère appellation is ideal for growing oceanic grape varieties such as Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec, the three varieties that make up Château de la Soujeole Grand Vin Rouge.
A wine of character from the best plots of the estate
The grapes are harvested by hand, in two stages, each variety is picked separately, in a precise order. The grape varieties are then blended after 12 months of maturing in oak barrels.
Made from the best parcels of the Château's vines, Château de la Soujeole Grand Vin Red is a cuvée of character, with a unique terroir flavour, for the great pleasure of lovers of good wine.
This expressive red wine with a deep ruby colour has a powerful nose and well integrated tannins. On the palate, this complex and tasty wine offers a nice freshness on the finish. Ideal tasting temperature: 16°C.
Château de la Soujeole Grand Vin Red will ideally accompany red meats, grilled or in sauce. This traditional wine will also go perfectly with the typical dish of its region, the Cassoulet.
