Domaine Sainte Marie des Crozes

Domaine Sainte Marie des Crozes

Run with fantastic energy by the young Christelle Alias, this 38 ha estate lies at the foot of the Montagne d’Alaric in the northerly, cooler part of the Corbières. In 1997 the vineyards were completely restructured by Christelle’s father, Bernard, and are now cultivated organically. Christelle joined her father in 2012 after a tour of the viticultural world and has clearly had fun creating her wines: there is a juicy vibrancy – she clearly aims for freshness and elegance over extraction and power.

Viticulture

Domaine Sainte Marie des Crozes in Douzens is located in the Alaric terroir, the northernmost terroir of the Corbières. Alaric is a mountain that stretches between Carcassonne and Lézignan. It was Alaric II, king of the Visigoths who gave it its name. It is said that he buried his treasure there. Its soft and elongated shape draws our horizon. Along its entire length, it streaks the landscape of limestone folds in a succession of rocky bands and stony terraces. At the crossroads of Mediterranean and oceanic influences, the Alaric terroir climate is sunny, dry and hot. Wineyard’s vines are planted on the mountainside, on clay-limestone slopes surrounded by scrubland which gives our wines the scents of thyme and hawthorn.
