I decided to bring in a new wine this week that I am very excited about. The wine is from the Coteaux du Languedoc, La Clape. La Clape is the most famous area for wines in the Languedoc and the winery, Pech Redon is up at the top of the hill of La Clape. They are ecocert certifed, and are using some biodynamic practices as well. The wine is a typical La Clape bottling - with Syrah, Grenache and Carignan. Here is a picture of the gate at the winery!

Great wine, with berried fruit, with a heady whiff of garrigue (wild herbs - rosemary/thyme), tar and a hint of cocoa. Excellent concentration of dark plum and blackberry fruit with lots of other flavors; licorice, smoked meat, and a hint of rosemary.It has the bright acidity that the non-interventionist winemakers have (usually I associate this with people who have very low sulfer bottlings); making it great with greasy food, and fun to let evolve over a few days! Good long finish; and fun to drink- especially at this price!
