Domaine Les Hautes Terres comprises 10 hectares. Gilles Azam grew up in the village of Roquetaillade where he and Geneviève now run the estate and although he was born to a wine-producing family, this estate is entirely his own, and was never the property of his family- he left the region in 1984 and returned in 2000 when he bought his first plots of vines and also his winery.
The nose exhibits aromas of fresh fruits and flowers. The palate is round and fruity but without heaviness, this cuvée is a beautiful southern interpretation of Chardonnay with a long finish.
