Winemaker Notes

Cap Insula Red offers wonderful aromas of ripe summer fruits and is very rounded on the palate, developing towards the long-lasting mineral finish so characteristic of this appellation. Serve at 65°F with grilled red meat, pan-fried mushrooms, or mature cheese.

Surrounded by vineyards and standing on a magnificent limestone terroir overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, Cap Insula is set on the tip of what used to be this island’s lagoon. Forming a link with the rich history of the region, Cap Insula is an eco-designed winery made with natural materials, and a spearhead of an environmentally friendly form of viticulture.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Coming from the la Clape region of the Languedoc (which is one of the most beautiful spots in the Languedoc) and offering lots of tobacco leaf, blackcurrants, chocolate and spice, the smokin’ good 2015 Languedoc Cap Insula is medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and textured, with a core of sweet fruit. Made from a blend of 47% Syrah, 30% Grenache and Carignan, aged in barrel, I’d happily drink bottles over the coming 4-5 years.

An extensive appellation producing a diverse selection of good quality and great values, Languedoc spans the Mediterranean coast from the Pyrenees mountains of Roussillon all the way to the Rhône Valley. Languedoc’s terrain is generally flat coastal plains, with a warm Mediterranean climate and frequent risk of drought.

Virtually every style of wine is made in this expansive region. Most dry wines are blends with varietal choice strongly influenced by the neighboring Rhône Valley. For reds and rosés, the primary grapes include Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, Cinsault and Mourvèdre. White varieties include Grenache Blanc, Muscat, Ugni Blanc, Vermentino, Macabéo, Clairette, Piquepoul and Bourbelenc.

International varieties are also planted in large numbers here, in particular Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The key region for sparkling wines here is Limoux, where Blanquette de Limoux is believed to have been the first sparkling wine made in France, even before Champagne. Crémant de Limoux is produced in a more modern style.

With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre form the base of the classic Rhône Red Blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. Though they originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley, with some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in other countries. Somm Secret—Putting their own local spin on the Rhône Red Blend, those from Priorat often include Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
