400 years of winemaking history can be found at Château de L'Aumerade in Provence. The Fabre family produces wines of exceptional quality here.
Château de L'Aumerade and the plane trees
The origins of Château de L'Aumerade can be traced back to 1594, when Henri IV ordered the planting of some blackberry bushes and plane trees. The trees still line the estate today. Viticulture followed shortly after. The current name comes from the Aumérat family , who owned the château in the 18th century.
In 1932, Henri Fabre finally acquired the château, which he had fallen in love with. Together with his wife Charlotte, he became one of the first bottlers of Côtes-de-Provence wines. In 1955, they were awarded the Cru Classe title.
Terroir of the Château de L'Aumerade
300 hectares of vines belong to Château de L'Aumerade, 80 of which have the Cru Classe designation. The soil is characterized by clay and limestone, the sea breezes bring cool air into the vineyards to dampen the heat of Provence.
The grapes are distributed among the Château's wines in the following way:
- 85% rosé
- 10 % red wines
- 5 % white wines
The bottle of the Marie-Christine wines, designed by Charlotte Fabre in 1956, is particularly striking. Besides several lines which are exclusively intended for gastronomy, Châteaude L'Aumerade offers with the Cuveé Louis Fabre a wine which can be stored very well, as well as second wines with the names L'Origine and Aumérade Style.
