CHATEAU DE LASTOURS

Château de Lastours is one of the most outstanding estates in the South of France. It is surrounded by 850 hectares of vineyards. Located 10 miles from Narbonne and 5 miles from the Mediterranean sea, alongside the property stands Via Dominitia, built by the Romans to link Italy to Spain via the southern region of France. This unique landscape was discovered by the Countess Ermengarde of Narbonne in the 12th Century ​

Since 2004, the estate has been owned by the Allard family who acquired it with the ambition to make the first “Grand Cru” wines of the Languedoc region. Thanks to innovation in the vineyard and meticulous attention paid to wine ageing in the cellar, Chateau de Lastours today features some of the very best wines of the region.​

Named Corbières Maritimes, located in the small village of Portel des Corbières at the foot of the Corbières mountain range and just 5 miles away from the Mediterranean Sea, this unique land combines a great terroir with the best climatic conditions:​

300 days of sunlight per year: a guarantee of maturity to create outstanding wines.​

300 days of wind per year: The cold Tramontane wind which blows from the North West dries the vines and the grapes enabling us to work 90% organically.​

Maritime micro-climate: Sea breezes from the Mediterranean allow for smooth air temperature variations throughout the year.​
