Description 1 of 1

The Domaine of Château Laquirou belongs to the Family Erika and Eckard Hug-Harke. It lies in the Massif of La Clape near the Mediterranean coast, a few kilometres away from the historic city of Narbonne. La Clape(pile of stones in occitan) is the jewel of the Coteaux du Languedoc. The poor soil and the exceptional amount of sunshine in this region are the best conditions to elaborate high quality wines. The location of Château Laquirou is exceptional: it nestles in a shallow south-facing basin that is sheltered from the dominant winds. The 38 ha of vineyards are surrounded by 60 ha of unspoiled garrigue, with its wealth of plant species and wildlife. You can discover rare eyed lizards, blue tits, European rollers, bee-eaters, hoopoes and at night, you can hear the eerie shriek of long-eared owls or the merry croaks of charming tree frogs. Rabbits and even wild boars also roam this area in midst of variegated flora. Aromatic plants (rosemary, thyme, brown-berried juniper), the luminous yellow blossoms of broom and even the extremely rare Centaurea of la Clape are native to this area. The silhouette of umbrella pines, holm oaks (or ausines in the local dialect), cork oaks, as well as limestone cliffs enhance the charm of this magnificent landscape. – Description from dvoristanac
