|Domaine Saint-Eugenie, Corbières Rosé|
Bordered by the river Aude to the west and the north, the foothills of the Pyrenées to the south and the Mediterranean to the east, Corbières marks out a vast quadrilateral where traces of an eventful geological past appear
The Domain Sainte Eugénie is located in the district of Bizanet in the middle of Cathar country
The eventful tectonic life of the region goes a long way towards explaining the co-existence of strata from different periods of the earth's life, a diversity emphasised by erosion
However, of the zones which are suitable for cultivation, clay and chalk soils dominate, a theme upon which there are variations according to the particular locality: red sandstone, stony terraces, calcareous clay, shale and Coral clay
The Mediterranean climate is dry, sunny and warm, affording long cycles to the vines
The dry, healthy wind from the north, which makes its presence felt the whole year round, explains why the Corbières vineyards require so little pesticide treatment.
