Magnificent dense dark ruby red colour.  Very spicy nose (white pepper) with touches of black fruits (blackberry.)  An ample and very long mouth with velvety tannins. This very beautiful wine expresses, by its concentration and its roasted notes all the complexity of the “terroir” of La Clape. Due to its complexity and concentration, this wine should be decanted for at least half an hour before serving.

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 “Appellation 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.  Syrah and Grenache are the principle components of the blend which also includes some Carignan. The low yields result in a maximum concentration and complexity. The grapes are harvested with great care, with double hand sorting and de-stemming.  After light crushing, skin maceration last for 25 days in  60HL conical wooden vats at controlled temperatures between 22° and 24°.  The wine is then matured in French oak barrels and then in conical wooden vats for three to six months before bottling.  Great with roast beef, stews, casseroles and strong cheeses.
