Château Guéry

Occitanie, France

Located in the picturesque town of Azille, in the enchanting Minervois region, lies the esteemed Château Guéry. Just a stone’s throw away from the magnificent city of Carcassonne, this family-owned estate is situated in an area known as the Balcons de l’Aude, overlooking the scenic Aude River. Here, the passionate winemakers at Château Guéry dedicate themselves to cultivating the uniqueness of their vineyard plots, crafting exceptional varietal wines such as Viognier, Sauvignon, and Chardonnay, as well as wines from the renowned Minervois appellation.

At Château Guéry, the character of the wines is shaped by the harmonious interplay of two influential factors: the prevailing winds, known as the Cers and the Autan, and the diverse terroir that encompasses sandstone, marl, hard limestone, schist, and even marble. These elements come together to lend a distinct and unparalleled personality to the wines produced here.

For Florence and René-Henry at Château Guéry, the journey begins with an understanding that everything originates from the soil. From meticulous pruning to careful harvesting, they bestow constant attention to the vines, working in harmony with the wild nature and the untamed land. Emphasizing minimal treatments, preserving vineyard biodiversity, and maintaining controlled yields, they strike a perfect balance between their love for nature and the application of winemaking technology. The result is a range of wines that artfully express the unique character of their terroir.

The white wines from Château Guéry enchant with their finesse and elegance, while the red wines captivate with their refined and graceful profiles, thanks to the manual “pigeage” technique—a gentle immersion of the grape skins during fermentation. While the estate’s wines are known for their remarkable consistency, each vintage presents a new challenge, a passionate encounter that fuels the winemakers’ dedication.

Notable accolades include the Viognier 2018, awarded the Gold Medal at the national IGP wine competition, and the L’Esprit d’Eloi 2017, also bestowed with a Gold Medal at the same event. Additionally, the Grès 2016 received acclaim in the esteemed Guide Hachette 2019, and the Sauvignon 2017 earned a remarkable double-star rating in the same guide. The Gewurztraminer 2017 was featured in the Collection Pays d’Oc 2018.
