Domaine Calmel & Joseph
Domaine Calmel & Joseph is a former smallholding that appears for the first time in a title deed in the name of Jehan de Calmès - Lord of Saint Jullia dated July 26, 1577. The smallholding will bear several names throughout its history, such as Borde Neuve or La Madone. Domaine Calmel & Joseph is located in the heart of a 160-hectare site with a total of 200 hectares, but noteworthy is its geographical location on the foothills of the Val de Dagne, the Alaric and the Hautes Corbières.
Calmel & Joseph Earth and Wind
The soils, mainly sandy clay and limestone with limestone outcrops in hills and valleys, allow the winemakers to find suitable sites and orientations. The domaine has a complex crossroads of geological but also climatic influences at the meeting of Corbières, Limoux and Minervois. The climate is typically Mediterranean, due to the presence of the small mountain Alaric that fends off the oceanic entrances, one finds here lower temperatures and much more rain than a few kilometers away towards Narbonne.
