AOC Coteaux du Languedoc La Clape
Deep red in colour, with intoxicating aromas of ripe currant, plum, and violet. You will also find notes of spices, licorice, and vanilla. Well balanced and elegant! Soft tannins. A light wood note in the long finish.
The Coteaux du Languedoc lies between Narbonne and Nîmes, along the coast line. It was recognized as a wine region in 1985. La Clape was an island 500 years ago and is considered one of the loveliest wine regions in Coteaux du Languedoc.
MIre L'Etang means to look into the pond in English. They might have named the 50 hectares vineyard this, due to the pond located next to the vineyard. The family Chameyrac has owned this vineyard since 1972 and since 2003 is listed as a Terra Vitis Agriculture raisonnée vineyard. The namesake of this wine, Aimée de Coigny, married the Duke of Fleury in 1785.
