Situated in the heart of the Corbières appellation, Château La Voulte-Gasparets
belongs to the Reverdy family. Patrick Reverdy and his son Laurent run the estate, enthusiastically promoting the expression of Carignan, of which they boast some of the oldest vines. Their mastery and the methods used in the vineyards have carried their wines to the top rank of the appellation.
The estate's vineyards sit on one of the best terroirs—if not the best—in Corbières, which Château la Voulte-Gasparets had the prescience to choose from the start and whose quality was recognized quite early. For its red and rosé wines, the château has remained loyal to Carignan (50%), a traditional, local grape that provides structure and originality, and whose roughness is so well tempered by Grenache (25%), another traditional variety; the essential character of Corbières is established by these two grapes, which are joined by more recent imports: Mourvèdre (15%) and Syrah (10%). The white wines here are made with unusual grapes: Rolle (50%), Grenache (40%), and Maccabeu (10%). All of these are grapes recognized by the appellation of Corbières, established in 1985, which was recently joined by the Boutenac appellation, where Château la Voulte-Gasparets is a star.
