Château de Fontenelles
Domaine de Fontenelles consists of 40 hectares of vines in the heart of Cathar country just below the Château de Miramont.
The vineyard is located in the Corbières appellation, and is spread over the terroir of Mount Alaric, with its exposition on the slopes of Miramont overlooking the Douzens plain. For five generations, the Domaine de Fontenelles has been guided by a passion for vines and wines.
Clay-limestone soils predominate in the vineyards and there are also pebbly terraces. The vines are in a climate zone that is halfway between Mediterranean and Oceanic and they are subject to the influence of both. Because of the north winds (dry and healthy) which are present year round on a regular basis, the number of disease treatments in the vineyards is reduced to a minimum.
