General information

Languedoc-Roussillon

Lafite Blason d'Aussieres Corbieres is a wine from Languedoc-Roussillon,region of France ,Languedoc-Roussillon region covers an area of 42,800 hectares, producing more than 1.8 million hectoliters in the extreme south of France. This is the first wine producing region of France in volume.
The first to establish vineyards in the area were the Greeks, in the fifth century BC. This then was the Romans who cultivated and vines enjoyed great expansion until the modern period (seventeenth century). In 1863, phylloxera ravaged French vineyards. Once a cure was found, the area under vine cultivation in the region increased sharply to become in the twentieth century, the largest vineyard in France.

Languedoc-Roussillon is located in a Mediterranean climate zone characterized by mild winters and hot, dry summers and low rainfall. The Tramontana wind dry vines and prevents diseases. It has a wide variety of soils (shale, sandstone, limestone boulders, sandy clay soils) which explains the richness of this region, and the diversity of the AOC proposed. During a long time, wines of Languedoc-Roussillon were seen as poor quality wines, producing only bulk wine. Now, the improved quality of the production and its sweet prices make Languedoc-Roussillon the first wine export region of France, celebrated for its refreshing pink wines and its fruity red wines. A large production of sparkling wines (Blanquette de Limoux) and of natural sweet wines (Muscat de Rivesaltes, Muscat de Lunel, Muscat de Frontigan, Maury,...) continues to impress the wine lovers.

Grape

  • Syrah(0.5%)  
    is a dark-skinned red wine grape from the northern Rhone Valley of eastern France. In Australia, Syrah is overwhelmingly (but not exclusively) known as Shiraz.Syrah is an extremely useful blending grape due to its deep color and typically high tannins, it can also age many decades. In the southern Rhone, it is common for Syrah to be blended with Grenache, Mourvedre, Carignan and Cinsaut, among others.Some of the world's most famous Syrah wines are the peppery, earthy reds of the northern Rhone Valley, specifically of the Cote-Rotie, Hermitage and Saint-Joseph appellations.Varietal Syrah can be quite floral in its youth, developing more peppery and vegetal notes as it ages. Some examples show tanned leather and smoky scents, while the fruit in these wines tends towards the very dark flavors of blackcurrant and licorice.The Valais in Switzerland and Burgenland in Austria welcomed Syrah as well with different styles of winemaking.
  • Garnacha(0.5%)  
    Garnacha (grenache in French) is a red-wine grape grown extensively in France, Spain, Australia and the United States. It is a particularly versatile varietal both in the vineyard and in the winery, and for this reason it has become one of the most widely distributed grape in the world. Some believe that the grape comes originally from Sardinia, and was taken back to Spain by the Aragonese, who occupied the island in the 14th Century. In France, Grenache is most widely planted in the southern Rhone Valley and throughout both Provence and Languedoc-Roussillon. Used in blends, it offers all sorts of possibilities. The Grenache-based rose is one of the southern France’s wine style's signature: wines produced in the towns of Tavel and Lirac are two good examples. In Spain, Garnacha is the second most planted red wine grape variety, outplanted only by its modern blending partner: Tempranillo.

Owner

While the first known reference to Lafite dates to 1234 with a certain Gombaud de Lafite, abbot of the Vertheuil Monastery north of Pauillac, Lafite’s mention as a medieval fief dates to the 14th century. The name Lafite comes from the Gascon language term “la hite”, which means “hillock”. There were probably already vineyards on the property at the time when the Ségur family organised the vineyard in the 17th century, and Lafite began to earn its reputation as a great winemaking estate. Jacques de Ségur was credited with the planting of the Lafite vineyard in the 1670s and in the early 1680s. In 1695, Jacques de Ségur’s heir, Alexandre, married the heiress of Château Latour, who gave birth to Nicolas-Alexandre de Ségur. The wine histories of the fiefs of Lafite and Latour were thus joined at the outset.

Vineyard

Blason d’Aussières is characterised by ripe fruit, fresh flavours, and a supple, full-bodied structure which is an excellent representation of the property’s terroir. Its aromas evoke the richness of the garrigues and the flavours are often spicy. 20% of the wine is aged in oak barrels for 12 months.
