Critical Acclaim: Concours International de Lyon Gold Medal

High in the hills of the Corbières, in a stunning corner of south west France, Château Trillol has been the Sichel family property since 1990. At 400m above sea level, the vineyard is located in two of the Corbières terroirs: Termenès and Quéribus. Here the local grape varieties, Grenache, Syrah and Carignan (harvested by hand), result in an authentic wine that is packed with character and a strong sense of place.

Critical Acclaim: Concours International de Lyon Gold Medal

Owned by the Sichel family since 1990, Château Trillol sits high up in the foothills of the Pyrenees at an altitude of 400 meters (1312 ft) in the Corbières AOC winegrowing region. The nearby Cathar castles add to the majesty of this outstanding, unspoiled natural environment. Benjamin Sichel is now the technical director for the estate, working hand in hand with Henri Guiot to help the wines fulfill their potential. 

The estate now consists of 40 hectares of Syrah, Grenache and Carignan in two distinct terroirs, Termenès and Quéribus. Following the latest acquisition of several blocks of vines adjoining the estate, future harvests will consist exclusively of grapes from the historic vineyard of Trillol. The team now has greater control over vintage quality and can produce wines that correspond exactly to their vision. 

The Corbieres region is located in the Languedoc and offers breathtakingly rugged hillsides. The region is quite warm and dry and vines are one of the few plants that can survive in the nutrient poor soils. Due to the size and geography of the region, the AOC is divided up into eleven different terroirs, whose soils can range from limestone to marl and sandstone. The vineyards for Trillol are located in two of the subregions within Corbières – Termenès and Qéribus. 

The silica-rich, Terroir de Termenès is located high up in the hills. The second, Terroir de Qéribus, is in the middle of the valley surrounding the village of Cucugnan. The high altitude of the vines (1312 ft and 656 ft) means that the grapes ripen slowly, giving them time to absorb the peppery aromas of the neighboring garrigue scrubland and to develop length and complexity around a magnificently balanced structure.
