Chateau Courac is located in the village of Laudun, north-west of Lirac, on the right bank of the Rhône. The old 220 acre vineyard is composed of well-drained, sandy clay soils and its history can be traced back over 400 years. It has good exposure to the Mistral winds and enjoys cool night time temperatures thanks to the heavily wooded lands that surround it (which also produce truffles!). Josephine and Fréderic Arnaud took over the estate in 1995 and have made vast improvements to the vineyards and the winery. Both are qualified oenologists and they farm using environmentally friendly methods. They strive to produce pure, fruit forward wines that express the special character of this vineyard through each vintage.
