Clinging to the steep Northern slopes of the hills, forming the higher rows of the amphitheater and stretching along the winding Agly river, the 4300-acre vineyards cover 32 communes, including Latour de France, Caramany, Lesquerde and Tautavel. Côtes-du-roussillon villages is a wine of controlled AOP on part of the Roussillon plain, in the Fenouillèdes and on the southern foothills of the Corbières massif.
Côtes du Roussillon Villages produce Red wines only. In this area the altitude is between 100 and 400 meters and the terrains are composed by granitic and gneissic sandy soil, brown and black schist in the Fenouillèdes mountains in the North-Western part of the department. In the foothills of the Corbières there are red clay-limestone soil and limestone, and rocky terraces on the left bank of the Têt. The distance from the sea and the altitude slightly mitigate the typical Mediterranean climate of Roussillon.
The wines from the Côtes du Roussillon Villages are powerful and complex wines, suitable for ageing. At the palete they have delicate tannins, enveloped by a savory creaminess with an intense and complex smell, the nose evokes the grilled fruit, the old boy’s jam, and reveals vanilla touches. It is recomended its consumption at 13-15ºC.
