CHÂTEAU

DE LANDURE

Marielle and Luc Rouvière are perpetuating their family winemaking tradition in Landure, the cradle of Cathar history. Luc is the son and grandson of winegrowers

Luc Rouvière tells us that they once unearthed fragments of Gallo-Roman amphorae which were used to transport the wines by ship. In 1649, the Abbey of Fontfroide sold the estate’s lands to one of Luc’s ancestors. In 1870, more than two hundred years later, Luc’s great-great-grandfather founded the château, during the region’s golden age of winemaking.

In the 1980s the vineyards had to adapt to meet the demands of the Minervois AOP. The Minervois appellation was created in 1985 and, four years later, Luc and Marielle decided to live on the domaine in order to closely oversee its conversion. In 1998, the domaine was selected by Val d’Orbieu for its top-quality wines matured in oak barrels.
