About
Owned by the Sichel family since 1990, Château Trillol is perched high up in the foothills of the Pyrenees at an altitude of 400 metres (1,312ft) in the AOC Corbières winegrowing region. The mysterious Cathar castles are close by, with their thousand years of history, and add to the majesty of this outstanding, unspoiled natural environment.

The Sichel family has undertaken a long-term project of expansion and replanting and the estate now boasts 40 hectares of Syrah, Grenache and Carignan in two distinct terroirs,Termenès and Quéribus.

The altitude of the vines (1,312ft and 656ft) means that the grapes ripen slowly, giving them time to absorb the peppery aromas of the neighboring garrigue scrub land, and to develop length and complexity around a magnificently balanced structure.
