Château St Jacques d'Albas
Situated in the Minervois, a seductive region in the west of France’s Languedoc, tucked in between the medieval city of Carcassonne, the Black Mountains and the Canal du Midi, the family-owned Château St Jacques d’Albas benefits from a wealth of natural advantages to produce impressive wines.
Over 60 hectares of forest and garrigue, teaming with wildlife, and an 11th century chapel, protect the 26 hectares of organic vines. Their philosophy from the beginning has been to limit yields and take an organic approach to managing the soil and the vines.

Organic, with vines averaging 30 years of age, the low yield vineyard is managed by the Cousinié Method (organic fertilizers and prescribed mineral spray applications, after soil and leaf analysis). Soil management excludes use of chemical weed killers.
A rich and complex bouquet of red fruits, smooth and generous on the palate, underpinned by soft tannins. To serve with grilled or roasted meats and spicy dishes.
