PRODUCER
Château du Donjon is a former monastic outpost six miles from Carcassonne, dating back to the thirteenth century. The Panis family has made wine in the region for over five hundred years, and this calling reclaimed the current owner, Jean Panis, from his first career as a sound engineer. Having taken over the winemaking in 1996, he now manages sixty-five hectares across several appellations.

VINEYARD
The vines average fifty years old, and are planted on stony terraces and clay-limestone slopes in the Clamoux area, close to Carcassonne.

WINERY
The grapes were destemmed then fermented at low temperature. The wine was aged in vat before bottling.
