Château Camplazens

+33 4-684-53889 Armissan, 11110

Camplazens is located at the top of La Clape, a limestone mountain 10 miles long and 4 miles wide overlooking the Mediterranean. La Clape is an official sub-appellation of Coteaux du Languedoc that is gaining in reputation for its wine making. Only 26 vineyards are situated on La Clape, an environmentally protected land since 1965, and the only permitted activity is grape growing. La Clape is comprised of limestone cliffs and fertile valleys, covered with wild moorland, or 'Garrigue.' The abundance of thyme, rosemary, lavender and sage together with a plethora of wild flowers and grasses create richly scented aromas, which are reproduced in the wine. The soil is rich alluvial clay, while when present in areas of limestone can be broken up to create a well drained, porous soil which makes maximum use of reflected sunlight for ripening the grapes. The climate conditions are ideal, combining the Northwest mountain breezes from the Carccassone Valley with the sea mists of the Mediterranean below. La Clape Read more »

  • Château Camplazens Syrah Vin de Pays d'Oc Camplazens 2007


    Full dark ruby-red color. Aromas of middle eastern spice, smoky tobacco, licorice and violets. The fruit tastes of just-ripe blackberries with meaty, dark earthy undertones and supple dusty tannins on the finish. Full-bodied and juicy. Reminds me of a solid Northern Rhone Croze-Hermitage at a much lower price! Read More
