The "Terroir"

vigne flaugergues

The Château de Flaugergues is situated in the heart of AOC Languedoc. Its terroir is known as ''La Mejanelle'' and its climatic zone is ''les Grés de Montpellier'' (from deposits in the Rhone delta) which thrives in the area's Mediterranean climate with its strong maritime influence.

The vineyard of 69 acres is dominated by early-ripening grapes particularly suited to the terroir. The red grape varieties are: grenache noir, syrah, mourvèdre, carignan, cinsault, merlot, marselan, arinarnoa and egiodola. The white grape varieties are: rolle, viognier and muscat à petit grain (dry). The vineyard is converted to sustainable agriculture, and is certified ISO 14001 (Terr’Avenir).

The result of this magnificent terroir: 8 different wines of excellent quality; it is the harmonious combination of different vines which allows the creation of such a rich range of fine, fresh aromatic wines, with silky tannins and subtle fruit aromas; or, with the finer, more robust wines, hints of smoke and spices (cocoa, pepper, liquorice, candied fruit, etc) .

Pierre would like to share his wines made from an elegant and generous terroir to which is attached. Discover the latest creation: a blend of syrah and marselan. 160,000 bottles are produced at the château each year, 50% of which are exported to 17 countries. For wine lovers, the château's wines are available online!

A new and sustainable winery in the heart of the vineyards

bouchon à vis

Inaugurated in October 2016, the new winery integrates with the historical heritage classified as Monument Historique. The design came from Sancie Matte of the MDR agency and is brought to life by the wine engineering specialist of Ingevin. It is designed to fit in with the landscape. This new state-of-the-art production tool is equipped with 26 stainless steel vats to improve the aging of wines and the production.

The Château de Flaugergues is Montpellier's green lungs. With its 27 hectares of green spaces, the château aimed to build a sustainable winery to achieve ecological management of effluent, energy savings, natural air conditioning, and water saving. The wine-growing and wine-making enterprise thus has environmental friendliness very much at heart. This project will be put into practice, both in the vineyards and through the formation of employees in this kind of environmentally respectful conduct.
This new winery is open to visitors who are looking for an authentic wine tourism experience. Discover the vineyards, the wines in the wine tasting room or in our restaurant Folia, or even in the gardens. Information and booking
