Producer: Chateau du Donjon The "Chateau du Donjon", once the property of the monks of the abbey of Caunes, has been family property since the 15th century. It takes its name from the ancient chateau of Bagnoles and from its picturesque 13th century donjon (keep) that shoots up in the middle of the cellar. The vineyard of the "Château du Donjon" stretch out over the rural district of BAGNOLES, the western part of the Minervois region, in the Clamoux area. It is divided into two large parts, one for A.O.C. Minervois, and the other for "Vin de Pays" (Regional wines). The yields of these wines are very limited, in order to obtain a magnificent concentration of aromas.
