Domain: Aurelles

This domain is one of the Languedoc’s best kept secrets. A great name that some say recalls the work of La Grange des Pères. The vineyard is farmed naturally, with precise vinifications and long élevages in vats. The cuvées are crafted to the highest level; they are refined, elegant and digestible.

Keen to acquire a vieilles vignes property, Basile Saint-Germain fell in love with the Domaine des Aurelles near Pézenas, and moved there in 1995. Originally a native of the Médoc, he had worked for two years at Château Latour, and – in common with his partner, Caroline Voisin – had had years of experience in Cognac. Together, they put into practice the skills and single-minded focus they had acquired from their home region… tailoring them carefully to their new home terroir, on the edge of the Nizas plateau, 30km from the Mediterranean. The hills feature Villafranchian sandy-gravel soil and basalt scree. The domain is adept in its use of phytobiology – the study of plants to avoid the use of fertiliser. Its vinification methods involve very little intervention.

What the guides say...

  • La Revue du vin de France
Low yields, meticulous attention to detail, coupled with a decision to release wines only after very long élevages in enamel vats: everything contributes to produced civilized, digestible wines with subtle fruit that has been slowly and surely subdued by the passing of time.
  • Bettane & Desseauve
Aurel Blanc is a unique wine that is only released after several years in the domain’s cellars, this is a very fine gastronomic wine and one of the Languedoc’s leading lights in terms of quality. The domain’s reds have come on a long way and the whites are head and shoulders above their peers in the region: the domain thoroughly deserves its fourth star.
