Story

The vintage
After a mild and dry winter, a very wet spring and significant rainfall in May, the groundwater reserves in the Languedoc were restored. However, this had the disadvantage of proliferating mildew in certain areas of the region. Thanks to a hot summer, dry air, and favorable temperatures with marked day-night fluctuations, this vintage will be remembered above all for the good quality of its grapes. The favorable climatic conditions allowed the grapes to be harvested at their optimum maturity. With this somewhat unusual climate, 2020 has all the makings of a fine year for the vintages at Chateau de Sérame and in the Languedoc.
Location
Located in the Languedoc, the historic Chateau de Sérame has origins dating back to the Gallo-Roman period. The Domaine is nestled in a preserved natural environment, bordered by the Aude river and the Canal du Midi, and at the junction of two appellations: Corbières and Minervois. Its remarkable range of terroirs allows for the elaboration of unique, full, and complex wines.
Since 2013, our vineyards have been awarded the AB label certified by ECOCERT as well as the European Bio logo.
