CHATEAU LA CANORGUE in Provence

Culture Biologique et Biodynamique pour les vins des Côtes du Luberon du chà¢teau la Canorgue French wine

The "CHATEAU LA CANORGUE" is situated in the heart of the Luberon, exactly in Bonnieux between Avignon and Aix-en-Provence. The Château was built on the site of a roman villa and its name comes from many underground waterways, often cut into the rock. These galeries are used to this day for the water in the Chäteau.

The "CHATEAU LA CANORGUE" is a small traditional family vineyard ideally placed for viniculture and the best strains of vines have been chosen and selected for the different wines : for the Red, the "Syrah" dominates and is combined with Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Grenache.For the Rosé, Grenache and Cinsault grapes are used,which when converted into wine and pressed at very low temperatures have an extra pale colour and a delicate aroma.

The fruity "Blanc de Blanc", a very elegant wine, is made from Clairette and Bourboulene vines. The Viognier is kept for the "´Vin de Pays".

The grapes, which are hand picked and carefully selected are made into wine using a traditional method.

Viticulture biologique et biodynamique

Chà¢teau la Canorgue, vins biologiques en AOC Côtes du Luberon French wine Provence Luberon

The "CHATEAU LA CANORGUE " has a main objective - to produce high quality wines using the most natural methods. In order to respect the environment the vines are cultivated organically and biodynamically ; no chemical products are used - the land is ploughed and natural insecticides employed ; taking into account the astral cycles ("Ecocert", controle by "Nature et Progrès").

The wines are bottled at the Château by the proprietor without any further processes in order to preserve the maximum aroma. The low yield (55hls/ha) and the small area of the vineyard produces a select top quality wine which has not changed for more than 20 years.

During the last few years, the Château La Canorgue has won the highest awards, including :

Gold medals at the "Concours Général Agricole de Paris", at the "Concours des Grands Vins à Macon", at Blayais, and at Avignon and Orange
