Food Pairing Le Jardin de Malepère will be an ideal companion for a traditional Castelnaudary Cassoulet, a slice of tasty red meat or a selection of local cheeses.
Located a few kilometres south of the religious Cité of Carcassonne, the Malepère Appellation is the western most AOP of the Languedoc with a strong Atlantic climatic influence from the West. This unique characteristic is linked to the nature of the soils and the topography. The hilltops are occupied by woods while the vineyards are planted on the clay and limestone slopes with gravel terraces surrounding the rolling hills. Dark garnet red in colour, notes of ripe red fruit develop on the palate sustained by a suave texture and rich structure.
