Vineyard 35ha Carcassonne
You're going to love the magnificent unobstructed view of the vineyard and the countryside, its authenticity, the large spaces and the tree-filled garden and its pool.
With a Mediterranean and oceanic climate, this 35 hectare AOC-AOP vineyard (29ha being only vines) is spread over 29 plots of limestone-clay land, some of which are on hillsides facing south-south-east and all adjoining the property. The lake measures about 800 m² and is on the north side of property, as are the different wells.
The exemplary working of the land has resulted in excellent cultivation conditions and there are 6 principal types of vines: Merlot, Cabernet Franc-Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot noir and Sauvignon, as well as Pinot Gris, Cinsaut, Marselan and Côt.
The perfect rotation of the vines assures a vineyard that is perfectly productive, with no uprooting to plan despite a part having "old vines." The farmer respects agri-environmental measures for the vineyard.
The average yield is 85 to 90 hl/ha for the PGI (protected geographical indication). The entire crop is currently intended for the local wine-growers' cooperative. Under contract until 2020.
You have to continue employing the farmhand. All the farming equipment can be sold at an additional cost.
There is also a 200 m² agricultural building near the house. The building has an adjoining lean-to measuring 200 m².
This lovely home is an old wine-growing farmhouse. The ground floor can be entered by either the splendid verandah of the fitted summer kitchen (20 m²) or by the front door, which gives onto a 12 m² reception hall. The verandah gives onto a large 45 m² living-cum-dining room with a fireplace that has heat recovery units. Next is the main kitchen, which is fully-fitted and measures 8 m². The bedroom on the ground floor measures 15 m² and has a dressing. The toilet is separate and the nice 12 m² bathroom has two washbasins, a shower and a heated towel rail.
