The Domaine de l'Aigle is located at the foot of the Roquetaillade cliff, where Bonelli's eagles nest, a protected species that gave its name to the estate. It occupies the top of the Limoux terroir, whose cool Pyrenean foothills climate allowed the production of the first sparkling wines in France as early as 1531 at the Abbey of Saint-Hilaire. Champenois and Burgundians were interested in this part of Languedoc where Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reach their perfect maturity without losing their freshness. The Domaine de l'Aigle was born of this ambition to plant the grape varieties of the northern vineyards in this exceptionally cool Languedoc terroir to explore their quality potential. Gérard Bertrand acquired the estate and its thirty-one hectares in 2007 with the desire to pursue a real quest for excellence. The grapes are grown using sustainable agriculture, in compliance with the Terra Vitis approach, which guarantees the traceability of cultivation practices verified by an independent organization. 

Tender, fruity and finely spiced. The tannins at the end of the mouth are fine and silky with a great length and a persistent finish on the fruit
