Expert reviews

"Organically grown on the hills above Limoux with the view of the Pyrenees (in winter) shown above. Recognisably perfumed but with a dry finish and an attractive streak of lime. A deep gold, screwcapped white that could stand up to many foods more readily associated with red wine."

James and Catherine Kinglake bought Domaine Begude in 2003

The story of the Domaine Begude

In 2006 we planted an experimental row of vines. Of these we found great success in ripening the Gewurztraminer, so we planted 3200 vines in our coolest plot which is northwest facing and abundant in limestone.

Domaine Begude vineyard owner
"I have always considered Domaine Begude to be a both a renegade and also a real pioneer of modern winemaking in the Languedoc. Their Gewurztraminer "Secret de Sud" is real innovative, cutting-edge stuff. It is also exceptionally good.

The rolling hills of Terredora di Paolo

The vineyard

Imagine a home situated amidst rolling vines in the hills of the Pyrenees mountains. This idyllic setting is both the home and workplace of James and Catherine Kinglake who bought Domaine Begude in 2008.

The vineyard was established in the late 16th century and has since gained a reputation for excellence, most of which is due to excelled terrier. They have 29 hectares of vines which benefit from the high altitude of the region that allows for a cooler climate. This gives white wines their crisp acidity.

Vines have been thriving on this property since the 16th century and with our organic approach to farming they will continue to be seen on the property for centuries to come.
