CAMAS SAUVIGNON BLANC
The Camas range declines 12 different grape varieties. Each of these illustrates their specific characteristics from their terroir of origin: Limoux (Languedoc Roussillon). Since the commitment of Anne de Joyeuse to our Protect Planet program, the local environment has strongly gained in biological diversity. We can now identify more than eighty species of orchids in our vineyards. The best known of these is locally called the ‘Bee Orchid’.

VINEYARD : With reasoned viticulture, our methods of cultivation are based on the observation of the natural plant cycles of vines and the development of biodiversity.
