GUILLAUME OURNAC, PIERRE-ANDRÉ OURNAC, CAMILLE OURNAC
Domaine Coudoulet is located in the village of Cesseras in the south of France, near the Spanish border. The 94 hectares of estate, which includes Roman ruins, has belonged to the Ournac family since 1840. It is located in the heart of the Minervois in the Languedoc-Roussillon wine region. Their Cru Minervois La Liviniere appellation is the first vintage from Languedoc, dating back to 1999. Traces of the Romans can be found in the vineyard, including villas which show that they worked the same land that the Ournac family cultivates today, a guarantee of quality and cultural history.
The estate uses more than 20 grape varieties from the Pays d'Oc (from Petite Syrah to Sangiovese, Gewurztraminer, Verdejo, etc.), favoring Syrah for the reds and Viognier for the whites. Driven by a desire to combine tradition with change, the vineyard has adapted its practices to meet the high standards demanded by a new generation of increasingly demanding drinkers and wine experts. Major investments have recently been made in the winery to ensure absolute care is taken in the quality of the finished product. The result is a range of wines that exceed expectations in terms of both quality and value.
