beautiful wines!

Sarcelle——Taking off here, golden valley with dual climates

Situated in the historic heart of the biggest wine-producing region of the world, which is also known as
the "Golden Valley", the territory of Sarcelle extends over a small hilly part of the country, in the
northern foothills of the plateau of Aumelas.

This region forms a vast amphitheatre buttressing a succession of mountain ranges from the Pyrenees 
in the Cévennes, to descend into the Mediterranean and crossing a multitude of geological landscapes 
dating from the Primary to the Quaternary era.

It has long been known that vines and olive trees are the only cultures able to survive the hot dry
summers of the area. There is however a marked rainy season giving heavy rainfall from late
August-early September until the end of May-early June. Crossing this famous Golden Valley, the 
Hérault River plays an essential role of thermoregulation.

The geological diversity found in the Villafranchian terraces buttressing the Aumelas Plateau as far as
the plains of the Golden Valley, with rather calcareous soils; whether chalky-clay or chalky-marl type or 
on hillsides encourages a range of grape varieties such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc, Grenache 
blanc, Viognier, Clairette, Cinsault, Grenache noir, Merlot, Cabernet-Sauvignon, Pinot noir, Syrah and 
Carignan.

The exceptional asset of the Vignerons de la Vicomté is being able to match the natural character of the 
grape varieties to the various winemaking techniques, from the very traditional to the very up-to-date. 
Indeed the wineries are furnished with ultra-sophisticated equipment (thermo-vinification, pneumatic 
cap-punching, maceration tanks for pre-fermentation etc.) allowing best-practice winemaking and 
giving optimum results.

With this blend of tradition and high-tech, Sarcelle is able to be produced powerfully, richly and 
generously and, at the same time, supplely and elegantly
