Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is very deep in color with purple highlights. The nose is dominated by stewed red fruits, with notes of cocoa and spices. The palate shows finesse and softness of the ripe red fruits and well-rounded tannins. The fruits are persistent on the finish.
My Notes:

About Domaine Clavel:

The name Clavel is associated with vines in Languedoc for generations. The current generations continue to perpetuate the family history, in the tradition of Jean Clavel, wine historian and creator of the AOC Coteaux du Languedoc. The vineyard of 33 hectares covers four remarkable featured territories of the Languedoc appellation: Pic Saint Loup, of course, but also Gres de Montpellier, The Mejanelle and Saint Christol. <> Domaine Clavel is conducted using organic farming practiced (more effort, listening and risks) with deep concern for the respect of nature. Domaine Clavel is internationally recognized and produced racy wines that do not deny their origins, those of a vineyard in history two millennia.
