The Domaine Les Hautes Terres is located in the Aude Valley, in Languedoc, in the Cirque de Roquetaillade. This terroir, which dates from 50 million years ago, is composed of ocher marl with deposits of sea fossils. In 2000, Gilles Azam bought his first vine, he now owns an area of 13 hectares. He plays with grape varieties, altitude, orientation and organic culture to produce elegant and complex wines.

Direct pressing of the whole bunches is followed by one-night of cold settling. The juice is racked off the heavy lees straight into concrete vats, where alcoholic fermentation begins naturally using only indigenous yeasts. The Chardonnay goes through full malolactic fermentation, the Mauzac does not.
