In the Minervois wine region of the Languedoc (11 Aude, Occitanie) Graham and Beatrice Nutter run the splendid Chateau St Jacques d’Albas in Laure-Minervois north east of Carcassonne and offer 2 gîtes (self-catering cottages ) on the estate for 4-6 people with an outdoor swimming pool, tennis court and vineyard!
The Chateau St Jacques d’Albas is an emerging quality domaine in the Minervois, Languedoc, Southern France which is surrounded by history from Roman times, the 13th Century Cathar religious movement and Saint Jacques de Compostelle pilgrimages.
The domaine has been producing award-winning Minervois AOC wines since 2001, since when the owners have embarked on a programme to re-invigorate the soil, reduce yields and vinify on-site. The domaine now has a public tasting area, as well as a music/seminar room for entertainment and wine-tourism. There are 3 self-catering flats on the estate, offering accommodation for 4-6 people. If you are looking for peace and quiet and a relaxing holiday, far from the mass tourism, you will appreciate this beautiful region with its hills and valleys, its intense quality of light and wide variety of places to visit.
The Chateau is in Laure-Minervois (11 Aude, Occitanie) which is also where one of our preferred wine producers is located – Chateau Gibalaux-Bonnet where brothers Didier and Olivier produce good Minervois wines and vins de pays – the red Minervois Cuvée Prieuré is excellent.
