Domaine de la Métairie d’Alon

Domaine de la Métairie d’Alon is a 62.5-acre estate planted with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines, located in a mountainous area around the village of Magrie, between Limoux and Roquetaillade, in the Languedoc’s Haute Vallée de l’Aude. It is composed of exceptional terroirs devoted to the production of high-end Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines, crafted from organically grown, handpicked grapes. The wines from our other top-quality plots are blended in their “Le Village” cuvées which, like in Burgundy, are representative of the terroir around of the village of Magrie as a whole.

The Limoux wine region is in the eastern foothills of the Pyrénées in southern France. The unique topography of the region and combination of Mediterranean and Atlantic influences has created ideal conditions for the slow, even ripening of the region’s white wine grapes. Despite being located at a southerly latitude, the climate is cooler and moister than in most of the wine regions in southern France. Its location in the foothills of the Pyrénées allows the vineyards to be at a higher elevation, and planted in optimal locations on hillsides. Magrie located in the suburbs of Limoux.

There are more than 460 acres of vines cultivated with an average annual production of 122,000 cases of wine.
