STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Domaine Cailhol Gautran is set amongst the rolling countryside, in the foothills of the Massif Central. The hamlet of Cailhol lies in a valley carved out by a river – the Cessière. Like the river this joins – the Cesse – it cuts through the limestone Causse of the Haut Minervois. The vineyards lie around the estate within a radius of 3 kilometres. The vineyards are planted on a sunny, south-facing limestone plateau at an altitude of 250 metres. The vineyards make up 55 hectares of vines in production, on the most beautiful terroirs of our estate. In addition we have planted 1,5 ha of Mourvedre in 2019, 2,3 ha of Grenache Noir in 2020 and soon we will plant an additional 2 ha of Syrah.
