Chateau le Bouis – Languedoc B&B

Chteau de Bouis B&BAn 18th Century wine chateau just two kilometers from the Mediterranean coast. Chateau le Bouïs includes a swimming pool and the opportunity to visit the wine cellar and museum!- and restaurant – rooms with air conditioning and en-suite facilities!

The vineyard chateau is near Gruissan (11 Aude, Occitanie) a short distance from Narbonne. Although the beaches can get very crowded in the mid Summer (July/August) just a few miles inland life is much pleasanter and less frenetic with characterful villages and stunning landscapes. There are a wealth of wine areas to explore with differing styles and much improved quality.

Narbonne (11 Aude, Languedoc) is a largish town that was once a port, but now just has a canal at its heart linking to the Canal du Midi.

There are 18 Languedoc-Origin wine appellations/vineyards from the foothills of the Cévennes; to the foot of the Pyrenees, and in the Massif des Corbières, even huddled inside the Montagne Noire amphitheatre [Black Mountain], or simply lying languid on the gentle slopes looking down over the lakes.

Across the 40,000 hectares [≈ 100,000 acres] hosting the 18 Languedoc labels, no wine resembles another, the only consistency being the Mediterranean, ever since ancient times, influencing climate and growth: mild winters, hot and dry Indian summers, scents from the scrubland and the winds carrying the sea spray.

30 years of toil has transformed the Languedoc vineyards: Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah have become the popular vine types of new plantations.  Each vine type boasts its own wine-growing, wine-making and wine-assembly methods, providing structured and well-balanced Languedoc A.O.C. wines. [A.O.C. – Appellation d’Origine Controllée = Origin-Controlled Wines].
