This rich organic red blends Grenache Noir and Syrah. An inviting deep ruby sparkles in the glass, and this wine’s dense fragrance reveals black cherry, ripe red fruit, and a hint of violet. Flavors of plum, licorice, almond, and sweet spices glide into a lingering finish with round soft tannins.

Try this luscious red with duck breast in black cherry sauce or grilled beef tournedos.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The chalky limestone vineyards of Château Pech Redon sit 200 meters above the Mediterranean sea on diverse soils of limestone, marl, and reddish sandstone. The domaine’s yield is moderate due to the ecological choices of the winegrower. Grapes are manually harvested in crates and destemmed and sorted in the vineyard. In 2015, La Clape was classified as an AOP. It is designated as 1 of only 6 "Crus du Languedoc,” the highest quality category. In the Occitan language spoken in the Languedoc in the Middle Ages, La Clape means "cairn,” a mound of stones. In ancient times, La Clape was an island off the Roman port of Narbo (Narbonne) on the Mediterranean coast.
Production Notes
Traditional vinification takes place, with five weeks of maceration. The Syrah is aged for 24 months in French oak. The Grenache is aged in stainless steel. The grapes undergo spontaneous fermentation.
Winemaker Notes
Winemaker Christophe Bousquet strives to create authentic Languedoc wines reflecting the unique grape varieties and terroir of the region.
Food Pairing Notes
Try this luscious red with duck breast in black cherry sauce or grilled beef tournedos.
