About Domaine de L’Agly : From winemakers Boris Kovac and David Serodes. Vallée des Aigles was born from their winemakers consultancy in Rouissillon and the purchase of Domaine de L’Agly. Step by step they extended their selections to the Limoux area and then Carcassonne. All their vineyards are located in altitude. The Domaine de l’Agly is located in mountains above Latour de France, a medieval village which once marked the entrance to the Kingdom of France, on the border with Spain.
This 12 hectare vineyard of mica schist on blue granite is nestled at an altitude of 300 meters, overlooking the magnificent valley of the Agly river between Mount Canigou, Pyrenees and the Mediterranean Sea.
Their small vineyard is in AOP Côtes du Roussillon Villages Latour de France. These plots, some very old planted in 1900 and 1919, and the youngest ones planted in 2006, are carefully maintained with High Environmental Value.
After years of meticulous work, Domaine de l’Agly and its wines has become one of the most qualitative estate in the region.

After decanting, the juice starts fermenting in stainless steel tank and then transferred to 500 ltr French oak barrels to finish its fermentation.
