Château Les Bugadelles is located in the South of France, in the La Clape uplands in the heart of Languedoc, between Narbonne and the Mediterranean. Jean-Claude Albert and his family bought the estate in 2004; abandoned for over a century, the 400 ha of scrubland had become overrun by kermes oak and wild boar. Identifying the terroirs, the Albert family prepared the land to plant vines as well as olive groves, truffle oaks, and fruit trees.

With soils that are mainly made up of limestone (with some sandstone), red clay, and shale, only the natural products and viticultural techniques permitted for organic wine growing are used throughout the estate; sheep take care of the weeds and provide the finest organic manure for their vineyards as they’re so beneficial to the shrubland due to how they aerate the soils, protecting against forest fires. The family goes well beyond the basic prerequisites for organic certification requirements, reverting to ancient farming wisdom and using cutting edge technology at the same time.

Along with Château Les Bugadelles, the family also produces wines from their other properties; Château Auris and Maison Albert.

Tasting Notes

On the nose, lots of southern French wild herbs and dark fruit- think plum, blueberry. On the palate, the flavours come through with added pepper spice and some meatiness. Pair with a selection of blue cheese, serve alongside a charcuterie spread, or put it up against your favourite cut of red meat. 

Method

Made from 40% Grenache Noir, 40% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, and 10% Carignan, the grapes are harvested by hand in small crates- once they get to the winery, everything is organized and computerized to avoid any oxidation of the crop and to ensure proper temperature control during fermentation.

    A classy wine that is a total surprise. Very well blended, organic on the nose, light tannins but with a rich and nicely light and refreshing on the palette. Excellent pairing with apéritifs, cheese and yourself,….good job…
