In the heart of the Corbières, on the prestigious terroir of Boutenac, four centuries of winegrowing tradition revived by current viticulture and winemaking techniques, this is the challenge taken up by Fabienne, jean Marc and Loïc Reulet. The 100 ha vineyard is spread over four soil and climate sectors: the sandy clay sector of Boutenac: a colluvium area producing varietal wines north of Boutenac. And in Appellation contrôlée: The clay-limestone slopes of Caumont-Cayenne: an appellation terroir producing colourful wines, with aromas reminiscent of the nearby garrigue. The siliceous clay soil of the sandstone of the Boutenac pine forest, in a magnificent environment of hillsides and pine groves. The vine produces rich, structured wines there, it is the soil of predilection of the Carignan grape variety. The Hauterive-Gasparets sector, cradle of the region's great wines. Here the old Carignan and Grenache vines offer all the expression of the terroir on molasses soils characterized by a carpet of pebbles. In red PDO: carignan, grenache, syrah, mourvèdre and cinsault, in white PDO: grenache, marsanne, roussanne, maccabeu and muscat, in red PGI: alicante, carignan, grenache, cinsault, nielluccio and syrah, in white PGI: maccabeu and roussanne. The vineyard is managed according to the regional specifications of sustainable viticulture. Limitation and justification of phytosanitary treatments and fertilizers. This is made possible by the continuous monitoring of the vineyard and rigorous management of interventions. This charter, which ensures the quality of the winegrowers' work, guarantees the quality of the grapes and respects the quality of the environment, is subject to annual inspection by the BUREAU VERITAS, an independent body that then authorises the use of the VITEALYS brand.

Our story

Hauterive le Haut, it is the result of the work of several generations of winegrowers around the village of Boutenac. Indeed, even if the vinification is done at the château only since 1998, our family has been cultivating its vines for many years.

Other little stories

For me, being a winegrower is above all a passion that has followed me since I was a child. In a way it is to contribute to the design of our landscapes, to promote ecological diversity but above all to produce a wine that resembles us in order to transmit this passion to those who will taste it

Born in the heart of the vineyard, my childhood was punctuated by the winegrower's actions of my parents and grandparents, I still remember the smell of fermentation that came into my room from my grandfather's adjoining cellar. Very attached to our Mediterranean culture, our family cultivates on this terroir of Boutenac the historical grape varieties, whose adaptation to the climate is optimal. My role as a winegrower is to apply the experience of several generations to sublimate each vintage
