Petit Causse or Château de Gourgazaud

Château de Gourgazaud locates in the South of France, between the Montagne Noire in the hills of the Minervois. The property covers more than 170 hectares. However, out of this total area, 100 hectares produce AOC red and white wines. Some people in Minervois region name this winery as “Petit Causse”.

The First Syrah and Mourvèdre in the Minervois

Ernest Piquet brought the idea of wine-producing in this area in 1870. His son, Marcel, continues the tradition and in 1973, Marcel’s son Roger Piquet moved to the Minervois to produce wine in this area covering 67 hectares. Within around ten years, Roger replaced all vineyards in the Chateau De Gourgazaud estate. He increased its size to 100 hectares and was the first to plant Syrah and Mourvèdre grapes in this area. The stringent application of low pruning, green grapes thinning and small yields contributed brought success to these wines. The Syrah and Mourvèdre grapes are two grape varieties for making full-bodied red wine at the Chateau De Gourgazaud winery. Now, Roger’s daughter, Chantale Piquet and grand-daughter of Ernest Piquet, Annick Tiburce, handle the wine production in this estate. The latest and exclusive collection of Château de Gourgazaud includes Quintus Quintus, an exceptional red wine.
