Aquired in 2002 by Jean-Claude Mas, the château is situated at the foot of the Pyrenean Mountain range, between 200 and 300 metres above sea level in the Limoux region (120 km from the coast). According to the history books, the world’s first ever sparkling wines were made in Limoux, in 1544.
Domaine Astruc comprises 80 hectares in AOP Limoux (coastal zone) AOP Malepère and IGP Pays d’Oc, of which 25 hectares are certified organic and 55 are farmed sustainably (certified by Terra Vitis). The Malras site is home to our main wine cellar and bottling chain, and is where the Teramas Astruc wines are made. It benefits from a significant amount of rain in winter as well as cold winds which extend the ripening season.
The harvest is carried out both by hand and by machine. The Guyot simple and Cordon de Royat pruning methods are employed. Chardonnay, Pinot noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon blanc, Chenin blanc, Mauzac, Grenache and Syrah aged around 20 years old thrive in the clay-limestone soils. The planting density is 5400 vines per hectare and the yield is 45 hl/ha.
Château Terramas Astruc produces 2 wines: an AOP Limoux white and red.
