“La Chevalière,” or “the knight’s lady,” is a reference to “Mas La Chevalière,” literally the “farmhouse of the knight’s lady,” the Laroche winery in southern France that was created by Michel Laroche. Surrounded by a wall, just like the “clos” enclosures in Burgundy, Mas LaChevalière is a place of history and character where the “jardins à la française” offer a Mediterranean accent.
Béziers is located in the center of the Languedoc region, just 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) from the Mediterranean. Vineyard orientation is south and east; the soil is predominantly clay and limestone, elevation 200 meters (656 feet).
