Notes from the Importer: Located in the Aude valley, on the very edge of Languedoc, 600 meters up in the dramatic foothills of the Pyrenees. The climate is influenced by both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Beautiful jutting bedrock make the land geologically famous, as well as making AOP Limoux an oyster of mineral beauty in the south. The Aude Valley is a stunning place where Charlemagne had a great fortress surrounded by massive limestone monuments. His warriors in Roquetaillade were tough guys who famously ate sword tips in their salads (a very French piece of apocrypha, but nevertheless an image I can't help but think of when I think of the power and sharpness of these wines).
