A Passionate Pursuit into the World of Winemaking in the Languedoc
The History of Château Mansenoble
In 2016, the Chateau was bought by a Latvian family who continues the tradition of Guido. Guido’s professional background was in insurance but had been writing about wine for many years. When he turned fifty, he decided to devote himself to winemaking and purchased a property with a long history. The Château was built in 1881 st by the Huc Family who owned it until Guido took over. The new owners modernized the equipment and selected only the best plots to grow, discarding others. Château Mansenoble is a passionate new winemaking endeavor in the Languedoc of Belgian couple Guido and Marie-Annick Jansegers-De Witte.
The Terroir of Château Mansenoble
Château Mansenoble is located below the great Mount Alaric in the Languedoc region. It is in the charming village of Moux, between Narbonne and Carcassonne. Its location exposes it to the dryness of the Mediterranean area and the cooler, wetter winds of the Atlantic. The region can be very hot but the influence of the Atlantic brings freshness. The soil is mostly clay-limestone and varies due to age differences.
