Domaine de la Métairie d’Alon is a 62.5-acre estate planted with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines, located in a mountainous area around the village of Magrie, between Limoux and Roquetaillade, in the Languedoc’s Haute Vallée de l’Aude. It is composed of exceptional terroirs devoted to the production of high-end Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines, crafted from organically grown, handpicked grapes. The wines from our other top-quality plots are blended in their "Le Village" cuvées which, like in Burgundy, are representative of the terroir around of the village of Magrie as a whole.

The Limoux wine region is in the eastern foothills of the Pyrénées in southern France. The unique topography of the region and combination of Mediterranean and Atlantic influences has created ideal conditions for the slow, even ripening of the region's white wine grapes. Despite being located at a southerly latitude, the climate is cooler and moister than in most of the wine regions in southern France. Its location in the foothills of the Pyrénées allows the vineyards to be at a higher elevation, and planted in optimal locations on hillsides. Magrie located in the suburbs of Limoux.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Beautiful cherry red in colour. Lovely nose redolent of red berries. Floral notes of peony and rose with a touch of ginger and cherry. Very fresh yet round on the palate evoking a touch of liquorice and white pepper. Full of freshness, elegance and finesse, this wine is long, balanced and exhibits real typicity inherent to the Pinot Noir grape as one would find in a red Burgundy.
Food Pairing Notes
Serve at 18°C with roasted veal with cream and mushrooms, roasted poultry (guinea fowl with prune), meat pie, beef with a wine sauce, charcuterie, risotto with mushrooms or cheeses.
