Winemaking in the Rousillon since the 1920s

Directly on the border, where France meets Spain, the brother-and-sister team, Véronique and Pierre Boudau, make their inicredibly high-quality wines. Here in the Rousillon they take advantage of the excellent terroir and the beautiful climate. Boudau has been making wine here in their family winery since the 1920s, at first mostly sweet white wines. Henry Boudau added some Grenache Noir vines in the 1950s but whites predominated. Eventually, by the 1980s when sweet whites were becoming less popular, the family shifted to dry wines. The Muscat de Rivesaltes of Domaine Boudau is popular throughout France.

Grenache Noir and Syrah Growing in Côtes de Rousillon Villages

The winery is located in the town of Rivesaltes in the Agly Valley, close to Perpignan. They produce wines in three differnet appellations which are Côtes de Rousillon, Côtes de Rousillon Villages and Vins Doux Naturels. On 23 winery hectares in Côtes de Rousillon Villages, they grow such grapes as Grenache Noir and Syrah. On the Baixas plateau the winery has 27 hectares of terraced land. On these slopes, the main grapes are mainly Grenache Noir but there are also four grape varieties of white grapes.

The Quality and Techniques of Domaine Boudau Winery

At Domaine Boudau they pick the grapes by hand between August and October, depending on the variety. Since the different vineyards have different terroirs, they also perform vinification separately to retain individual characteristics. To preserve aroma the sweeter wines undergo an earlier bottling, while the others age in vats or barrels. Pierre and Véronique blend the wines together with Benoit, the head winemaker and Brigite, the Domain’s oenologist. It is a system that ensures the quality that Domain Boudau is famous for.
