The domain's short story

"The Château de Flaugergues, a marvelous 18th century folly, is an island of greenery in the city of Montpellier. This former Tuscan-style pleasure residence has been able to preserve its wine-growing activity in the heart of the city, as well as its sumptuous gardens, which have been awarded the "Remarkable" label, and thus a whole harmonious universe rewarded by a 2nd star in the Michelin Green Guide in 2016. A delicate balance protected for 33 years by its full classification as a Historic Monument. The Colbert family has been winegrowers and hosts of the place for 323 years. Henri and Brigitte, pioneers of this revival since 1972, later joined by Pierre and Marie, open the doors of this Montpellier folly to visitors from all over France and the world. An active hive of 25 people at the service of good and beautiful.

The winemaker's pride

Pierre Colbert has been at the head of the vineyard for ten years. Trained as an engineer and heir to the estate's viticultural traditions, he has been able to bring technical progress and his know-how to the estate, enabling it to obtain wines that are increasingly faithful to their terroir. The estate is located on the terroir of "La Méjanelle" in the "Grés de Montpellier" climatic zone. The soil is mostly composed of terraces of rolled pebbles, relics of the Rhone delta. The Mediterranean balance, with a strong marine influence, allows the cultivation of various grape varieties. Grenache Noir, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Merlot, Marselan, Rolle, Viognier and Muscat come to sublimate the gardens of Château de Flaugergues. Today 8 fresh vintages by the early maturity of the grapes will come to delight you with their silky tannins, and their subtle fruit aromas. The new cellar allows us to control the quality of the wines and to reveal even better their typicity. Thanks to its 26 stainless steel vats, the vinification can be done with finesse, by plot before blending and maturing. Since 2015, the vineyard is conducted in environmental agriculture, through a collective certification ISO 14001, via the association Terr'Avenir Languedoc Roussillon, guaranteeing an efficient and ecological management of the company, through a continuous improvement process. More recently, since 2019, the property is also certified HVE (High Environmental Value) and Terra Vitis, certifying the eco-responsible commitment to sustainable viticulture.
