Languedoc-Roussillon

There’s something very complete about our annual offer of wines from the Languedoc and Roussillon: with whites, rosés and reds, and wonderful fortified wines, the Vins Doux Naturels which are such a speciality of the region, there should be something for all tastes. Secondly, there are wines for every budget; at every level we believe these wines continue to offer terrific...

Grenache / Garnacha 

Grenache grows well in hot, dry regions, though it can develop very high (15 degrees+) alcohol.

As such it is grown principally in Southern France and Spain (as Garnacha). It is usually blended with other varieties in the Southern Rhône and Languedoc (Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan, Cinsaut and others).

Its flavour usually encompasses the...

La Combe Saint Paul, Gres Rouges, La Clape, 2022

Named after the vineyard soils derived from grés rouges (red sandstone); 60% Syrah with 20% each of Mourvèdre and Grenache, basically unoaked (10% in old barrels). Tasting note to follow....

La Clape (a “heap of pebbles” in the old Occitan language of the south), just east of Narbonne was once a rocky island; geologically speaking a klippen, an eroded remnant of a Jurassic up-thrust, cut off from the mainland. Sediments from the river Aude attached it to the mainland in the 14th Century. La Clape’s potential for viticulture was actually spotted by the Romans, who planted vines and shipped wine from here back to their distant capital. The combination of some altitude (the rock rises over 200m.) sea mists, and plentiful wind (the Tramontane from the plateau to the north is particularly violent) gives a little freshness to the air here, and extends the growing season in one of the sunniest spots in France.

Paul and Line Maury might be amongst our youngest producers but winemaking runs in the genes. Paul’s grandparents and great grandparents were winemakers specialising in single varietal wines, and we also stock the family's great value  examples of Chardonnay, Vermentino and Viognier. In 2008 Paul came across the opportunity to buy vines on La Clape itself. His vineyard near the sea is surrounded by pine and oak trees; here Syrah is planted on typical clay-limestone soils, whereas the Mourvèdre vineyards show more clay and sand.

Great choice of good-value wines in the January sales. The website is really easy to use to make up an order. Delivery, as is often the case, was within 24 hours and, as usual, was well-packed.
