Jean-Noël Bousquet relocated his winery to the Lézignan ring road, after his old cellar collapsed during the incredible floods of winter 1999, which at least provided him with the opportunity to remodel the winemaking facilities and incorporate a smart tasting reception area and shop. The estate has now expanded beyond 100ha in size, some of which is classified as Corbières-Boutenac. As well as the latter promising full-bodied red, Jean-Noël’s best wines include his Terres Rouges and Vieilles Vignes reds and elegant, yet full and dry La Tour rosé.
