Corbières, Languedoc-Roussillon, France
About the Winery
Owned by the Sichel family since 1990, Château Trillol is perched high up in the foothills of the Pyrenees at an altitude of 400 metres in the AOC Corbières winegrowing region. The mysterious Cathar castles close by with their thousand years of history, add to the majesty of this outstanding, unspoiled natural environment.
The Sichel family has undertaken a long-term project of expansion and replanting and the estate now boasts 40 hectares of Syrah, Grenache and Carignan in two distinct terroirs: Termenès and Quéribus.
The altitude of the vines means that the grapes ripen slowly, giving them time to absorb the peppery aromas of the neighbouring garrigue scrubland and to develop length and complexity around a magnificently balanced structure.
Grenache, Syrah and Carignan.
