About the winery
Château de Gourgazaud is like an island, preched in pinewoods. Overlooking the Syrah ans Mourvèdre vines on the terraces of La Livinière. It’s an universe in itself, where Roger Piquet and his familiy have developed the Minervois lands with pride in both their vines and wines. Far from fashion and sparkle, since 1973, here on the hundred hectare estate, everything has been set up to guide the Château in the culture of quality and the production of great wines. In addition to the stylish reds, whose ambition is to combine and tame the impetuous Mediterranean grapes to classic elegance. Château de Gourgazaud, largest producer of AOC La Livinière, has been noted for its whaites and in particular, the exuberant Viognier, born in the black shale of the neighbouring hills.
