Terroir and Vinification

Ideally located in the middle of the Languedoc’s largest natural site, viticulture is practiced producing wines of high quality and reflecting the best that “Appellations La Clape” has to offer.  In 2015, the appellation La Clape was accredited “Grand Cru” thus joining other prestigious, internationally renowned French appellations. The grapes for this wine come from vine planted on urgonian limestone clay and stony soils.  Bourboulenc, Marsanne, Roussanne and White Grenache are the principle components of this blend which also includes a small (10%) amount of Viognier. The low yields result in maximum concentration and complexity. The grapes are harvested with great care and are hand sorted before being pressed directly. Fermentation is in new oak barrels. The wine is then matured in French oak barrels (70% new oak barrels, 30% barrels of one wine.)  Great with exotic dishes, poultry and cheese.
