Off the beaten track south of Limoux, a small road leads off to the right up a long valley ending (not quite although it feels like the end of the world) in the remote, tiny village of Roquetaillade, home to some fine Limoux producers including Marie-Claire and Pierre Fort. They returned to the south after many years winemaking at the famous Château de Tracy in Pouilly-Fumé and have just 4.5ha of vineyards. These well-looked after vines, some of them planted up to 400m altitude on quite steep slopes, are the source for a high quality Chardonnay and a Pinot Noir, which gets better each vintage. Mouscaillo is a another ’estate to watch’ on the list of classy wine producers at the southern end of the appellation, along with for example neighbouring Domaine de l’Aigle owned by the Gérard Bertrand group (see ‘Around Narbonne’ guide).
