Winery Description

Geographical situation
The estate is situated in the deep south in the upper Agly valley and enjoys a favorable location, both for the type of grounds there and its sunniness and microclimate.

History
The history of the Domaines Salvat is completely related to the Château de Taichac that was constructed in the 14th century by the Du Vivier family who left it in 1856.
The grandfather, Irènée Salvat, took over the estate and was the first to plant the vines on the hillsides. Today Jean-Philippe Savat and his son Philippe are at the head of the family business.

The vineyard
Facing the Canigou, the estate stretches over 45ha at an altitude of 400 meters and over 25ha on the southern side of the Têt.

Primary varietals
Red Wines: Grenache Carignan, Merlot and Syrah
White Wines: Grenache Gris and Grenache Blanc, Macabeu, Malvoisie, Muscats, Roussanne and Marsanne

Enjoyable, balanced wine
By Sean Lisa Suzuki on 27 July 2015

On the palate, this wine was light bodied, nicely balanced and bright. The finish is dry and it’s flavors fade away nicely. It perfectly paired with the grilled swordfish I ordered.


Good wine
By Shunsuke Murasaki on 24 July 2015

This wine was very easy to drink. However perhaps too easy that it faded sooner than I thought. I was expecting a little more of a finishing taste that would last longer. However, it was very pleasant and was a nice first drink before my appetizers.
