We renewed contact with this old estate at a sad point, shortly after the untimely death of young proprietor Jean-Marc Vergnes. His widow, Isabelle, wanted to carry on the domaine, but finally decided to take on new partners, as she has young children. We are optimistic that the quality-mindedness of this superb producer of sparkling wines will not change. Limoux is arguably the first place in France to have invented sparkling wine. Its limestone soils and markedly cooler climate make it apt for this category. The price-quality ratio is amazing.
City of Origin:
Jean Claude Mas
Total Annual Production:
This charming property is only 15 minutes away from the famous City of Carcassonne, at the end of a road that winds its way across the countryside through vineyards, olive trees and heath. You will be welcomed in our wine-tasting cellar which is listed as a "landmark of good taste" (site remarquable du gout) and classified as a special stopover in Cathar country (étape terroir du pays cathare).
Domaine Vergnes has been a family-run Estate for three generations and is located in Saint-Hilaire, where the Blanquette de Limoux wines were born. Jean-Claude Mas acquired the Estate in 2011, fascinated by the place, the quality of the wines and the chance to make his dream come true and have his own sparkling wines!
