ARMISSAN , 11110
France View map

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 »

    Forum post in the topic The Thanksgiving thread

  • So, do you have your wine planned out yet for the Thanksgiving meal? I'm going a bit off course this year as I am smoking my turkey so I'm probably going to go heavy on Syrah rather than Pinot Noir. But that could change based on input from the guests.First off I'll likely pop a 2010 Copain Baker Ranch Syrah as it shows quite Pinot-like and I ha... Read More
