The Mythical expression of a terroir
Legend as it that the source of Sarrabelle, which springs up near the medieval Montaigut castle, was the place of with the beautiful Yolande.
Its name comes from an old Occitan expression «sarrobello» which means to embrace one’s love. From the castle’s destruction during the crusade against the Albigeois,only the foundations remained, upon which the Montaigut chapel was built.
Today, Laurent and Fabien Caussé (8th generation of wine growers on the Sarrabelle estate) gave the name of this source to their wines.They produce top-of-the-line wines such as the vintage Saint André and Mauzac de Sarrabelle.
Permanent research, in keeping with agricultural tradition has led to the development of a sweet white wine ( in limited production) sought after and served in the finest gourmet restaurants.
