Château Saint Jean d’Aumières is located in the heart of the prestigious Terrasses du Larzac. The vine has been cultivated here since ancient times by the Romans, then by the Benedictine monks who founded the abbeys of Aniane and Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert at the turn of the 9th century.
The Château St-Jean d’Aumières vineyards extend over the limestone hillsides that overlook the gorges of the upper Hérault valley. A few ares of Viognier, growing around an old oak tree, are used for the production of this fine white wine.
After pressing in an inert atmosphere, the fermentation of the must is carried out in a totally airtight environment and at a low temperature (16°C) to preserve the delicate aromas and achieve great aromatic finesse. Ageing on the fine lees with occasional stirring to lend the wine fatness and structure.
