Winemaker's Note

In 1868 Docteur Guyot, who helped shape modern scientific approaches to French viticulture, stated that “Limoux wines should figure among the list of good red wines”. From this same belief, Cave Anne de Joyeuse was founded in 1929 to vinify said red wines. Over time, winegrowers and consumers alike have realized the exceptional quality of this terroir.

The vineyard is located at the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains. The highest expression of a vineyard in altitude. In Limoux, more precisely in the Upper Valley, the climate is composed of cool air, and red clay soils rich in iron from the Cretaceous period on a base of crushed limestone. The drastic temperature fluctuations between day and night are perfect for the production of polyphenols and antioxidants.



The grapes are hand-picked, followed by a 30-day maceration and fermentation in temperature-controlled steel tanks. The wine is fermented in Vats for 8 days, followed by aging in 50% stainless steel tanks, and 50% Oak Barrels (of which 1/3 are new).

Well Rounded and Fruity

Nice Cab, hints of red fruits. It's a bit sweet but well balanced.
