La Clape

La Clape lays claim to an impressively beautiful landscape, but is also one of the harshest environments for grape growing in Languedoc due to the heat and minimal rainfall. La Clape was once an island, but thanks to the changing course of the Aude River La Clape is now part of the mainland and its soils bear evidence of this change; they are extremely diverse and thus are home to a variety of grapes. Red and white wines are produced here in view of the Bay of Narbonne. Red wines are blends of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, while whites feature the rare Bourboulenc. This AOC is a Cru du Languedoc.
