The area of sixty hectares belongs to the family since 1969 Gianesini.
Half of the production is claimed wines, another AOC Cabardès.
All from vineyards located on the clay and limestone slopes at very high stone content.
The vinification is traditional, with égrapage, temperature control and aged in vats or barrels, depending on the vintage.
In view of the towers of the medieval city of Carcassonne, in the foothills of the Black Mountains, the vineyard covers 60 hectares grouped around the Castle Jouclary.

This transitional climate allows each grape variety to fully express its characteristics.
