Situated in the heart of the Corbières on the site of an ancient Roman villa, the Château du Grand Caumont extends over 100 hectares of plain and hillsides along the garrigues. The clay-limestone and rocky soil, the dry, sunny and windy climate, the old Carignan vines cultivated with care and passion by Laurence Rigal allow her to produce sunny, fruity and spicy, round, elegant and silky wines.

Our story

Louis Rigal, founder of the "Société des Roqueforts Louis Rigal", bought the Grand Caumont estate in 1906 and bequeathed it to his son, also named Louis. His wife Françoise, originally from Normandy, twenty-one years his junior, was an enterprising and passionate woman who in turn developed the estate, introduced new grape varieties, optimised vinification and produced high quality vintages. Since 2003, I have taken over with the same passion after 17 years in marketing and advertising in Paris. I have developed new cuvées, notably in white Corbières and rosé Corbières and our great "Capus Monti" cuvée, and continued this quest for quality and aromatic pleasure. The wines of Château du Grand Caumont, rich with very old Carignan vines vinified in whole bunches, with aromas of fruit and spices, combine the sunshine of the beautiful terroirs of the South with roundness, suppleness and elegance.

Other little stories

Born in Paris but having spent my entire childhood surveying every square centimetre of the Grand Caumont, I shared unforgettable moments with the children and then teenagers who lived on the estate with their families, building huts, fishing for eels at night, selling fish in the villages... Later, as a graduate of Sciences Po and working in advertising, I did not hesitate to give up everything to embark on the beautiful adventure of wine. Two people are essential to me, Patrick, our cellar master for 32 years, and Pascale who accompanies me in the promotion and sales of our wines. Our vintages are typical of the South, warm, powerful, fruity but they are above all the opposite of extreme concentration or hardness. Elegance, charm, silky tannins must accompany every moment of the life of our customers and friends and bring them a real pleasure of the South. The world of wine is an infinite discovery and meeting winemakers from other regions or countries is always a great pleasure for me.
