But what is the legend of the Cru?
My land is linked to a mountain called Montagne Noire. Geology tells us that the Mountain Noire was formed in the tertiary era during the formation of the Pyrenees. But a legend attributes it to the action of a magical being. What is the name of this magical being?

Report the clues collected during your getaway in the different wine estates:

The last clue

Legend has it that the elves Bug and Arach gave their name to Bugarach, the highest peak
Corbieres. But with us, precisely in the Haut Minervois, it is a magical being who gave
its name to the highest peak of the Montagne Noire.


What's her name ?
