Domain D'O
In the heart of the Limoux appellation

The Domaine d’O’s vineyards are just south of Saint Hilaire at the piedmont of the Pyrenees’.


Our terroir in numbers

The magic in our soil is the blend of these three factors




The soil composition of clay, limestone and gravel combined with the altitudes of the vines at around 400 meters above sea level, are at the source of our unique Pyrenean microclimate. 

The  vines benefit from influences of the cool and dry Atlantic wind, the Mediterranean sun and an above average rainfall for the South of France. 

Ultimately, our terroir’s topography and microclimate are key elements that  enable us to bring the best of Burgundy to the Languedoc.


The Domaine d’O’s vineyards are classified within the AOP1 Limoux, one of the most prestigious appellations in the South of France.

Nevertheless, I choose to produce the wines as IGP2 Haute Vallee de l’Aude, a small terroir within the Limoux appellation. 

While this is not perhaps viewed as the most logical step, here is the reason why:  If you were to ask anyone where you can get the best Pinot Noir in the Languedoc, they will point you towards Limoux, however the grape varietal, Pinot Noir is not admitted by the AOP Limoux. 

As such, with little patience for French regulations and at the risk of becoming the “enfant terrible”, I decided to present both our Pinot Noir and Chardonnay jointly under the banner of the IGP ‘Haute Vallee de l‘Aude’
