Ôde: the new Capitoul rosé, an ode to the Aude department

In spring 2021, we introduced you to Le Rosé – Vaugelas and Lycia - Capitoul. Now it’s time for us to present Ôde de Capitoul, the ultimate seaside rosé.

With its sophisticated, elegant bottle complete with shimmering reflections and Vinolok glass closure, its pale pink hue will make the perfect centrepiece for your dinner table, from the aperitif through to dessert, depending on how you like yours!

Ôde by Capitoul delivers complex aromatics of red fruits, citrus, spice scents and floral and mineral notes on the nose, flowing into a rich palate with the kind of freshness on the finish that is perfectly suited to fine weather. Its lightness stems mostly from the fact that the grapes are picked during the coolest hours of the night.

Discover and taste Capitoul – Ôde in all of our wine tourism venues and cellar door facilities.

Château l’Esparrou re-opens

The time has finally come for venues to re-open and we are delighted! Since June 1, the cellar door shop and gallery at Château l’Esparrou welcomes you all week from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm and from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm (closed on Sunday afternoons and Monday afternoons). In July and August, opening times will be extended until 8:30 pm.

Make a note in your diary – every Tuesday from 7 pm onwards, we will be hosting a weekly event called L’Apéro des Artistes, including the l’Esparrou wine bar, live music and arts performances… To eat, there are a number of delicious options – Spanish bodega, oyster bar and a kebab and sushi bar, all of which is orchestrated by our partners Casa Brava and Ola Bellota from the Vauban indoor market in Perpignan.

How about a visit to the Château l’Esparrou gallery where you can discover the unique world of three local resident artists: Jahlu6ne, Malou and Prooz. It’s certainly something to feast your eyes on!

Our wine tourism estates enter the limelight 

You know how much it means for us to introduce you to authentic places and to offer you some memorable experiences. It is therefore with great pride that we became the recipients of a bronze medal at the Wine Tourism Trophies for Château Les Carrasses, in the ‘Landscapes and Architecture’ category. 

The award comes with further recognition! Three of our wine tourism estates - Château Capitoul, Château l’Esparrou and Château Les Carrasses, were recommended by Terre de Vins, in its latest wine tourism magazine. 

We would be delighted to see you there!
