La Livinière, the first appellation in the villages of Minervois and Languedoc. You have arrived at Félines-Minervois, at the gates of Borie de Maurel, on the lands of the Escande family.
Whether you already know the Borie de Maurel estate or not, you are here at home. Take the opportunity to discover the Mediterranean landscapes, the garrigues and the maquis that surround our vineyards.
Although Borie de Maurel has now become a large estate, 35 hectares of vines in operation, both in garrigues and maquis, everything remains as on the first day. In Felines, Mondovino, international capital, the stock market ... knows not: here, everything happens in family.
In Borie de Maurel, of course, all the viti-vinicultural acts are manual, from plowing to harvest, which takes place "traditionally" a good fortnight after the usual dates in order to collect perfectly ripe grapes. The masses of air descending from the crests bring the vineyard crushed with heat as a nocturnal respite; This meso-climate, linked to the topography, ensures the maturity of the Syrah or Marsanne who draw on all the minerality characteristic of the wines of Borie de Maurel.
The vines of Borie de Maurel are clinging to the slopes of the Black Mountain, east of Carcassonne.
The Domaine Borie de Maurel is managed according to the principles of a viticulture of terroir without inputs to the rhythm of the man, the seasons and his plowing horses. The wines of Domaine Borie de Maurel are among the Languedoc's best known wines with a real signature.
