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 »

  • Jimmy - As Emark says, the wine is from the Languedoc-Rousillon region, but ... ... They used to call it the Midi, then Languedoc-Rousillon, and in recent years, have decided to call it the “Sud”. I don’t think the problem was the name though. It’s the region where the French wine industry is in real trouble because it produces an ocean of che... Read More
