A dose of La Clape

Childish humour aside, there are two new Languedoc "winery snapshots" on WineWriting, the site, featuring Château Camplazens and Château Pech Redon; both found on "the curious hunk of untamed hilly rock that is La Clape" between Narbonne and the sea. Talking of which, I just spent a couple of days at some mammoth 2009 vintage "en primeur" tastings of lots of Languedoc wines, including several rather good white wines actually (it's perhaps best known for its reds) from this compact and distinctive sub-appellation. Round of applause then (get it, ho ho?).
Full report on those Languedoc 09s is on my other blog HERE. And follow these links for more info on Camplazens and Pech Redon...
