Located in the heart of the Corbières on the site of an old Roman villa, Château du Grand Caumont extends over 100 ha of plain and hillsides along the garrigues. The clay-limestone and rocky soil, the sunny and windy dry climate, the old Carignan vines cultivated with care and passion by Laurence Rigal allow her to produce fruity and spicy, round, elegant and silky sun wines.
Louis Rigal, founder of the "Société des Roqueforts Louis Rigal", bought the Grand Caumont estate in 1906 and bequeathed it to his son, also known as Louis. His wife Françoise, twenty-one years younger than him, is an entrepreneur and passionate woman who in turn develops the estate, introduces new grape varieties, optimises winemaking and produces high quality vintages. Since 2003, I have taken over with the same passion after 17 years in marketing and advertising, I have developed new vintages, especially in white and rosé, and continued this quest for quality and aromatic pleasure. The wines of Château du Grand Caumont are rich in very old Carignan vines vinified in whole bunches, with aromas of fruit and spices, combining the sun of the beautiful terroirs of the South, roundness, elegance and suppleness.
I fell in love with the estate and I became passionate about Corbières when I married my husband Autodidacte, a native Normandy native, I worked hard to optimize the vines in the estate, renovate the cellar and develop my vintages. I have created one by one the different vintages and referenced my wines all over the world. A number of years ago, one of my flagship wines was named "Cuvée Impatience" in honour of my determination and passion.
