Vine-growers since 1795, Domaine Sarrabelle, from the legend to the expression of the terroir. Legend has it that the Sarrabelle source that gushes near to the Medieval Château de Montaigut was the place that those in love with the beautiful Yolande met. The name comes from the Occitan "Sarro-bello", to take the beautiful one in one's arm... The Château, destroyed during the Albigeois Crusades, had its lower parts still standing and above it was built the Chapel of Montaigut. Today, Laurent and Fabien Caussé (eighth generation of wine-makers on the estate) gave the name of this source to their wines. From traditional "vin de pays", to top of the range wines, such as the Saint André and the Mauzac de Sarrabelle. Ongoing research and respect for traditional agriculture has resulted in the creation of a limited edition vin doux, served at some of the best tables. Tradition, innovation and quality is the Caussé brothers' motto.
