Domaine le Bouis

Located in the Aude department, AOC La Clape extends from Narbonne to the Mediterranean over an area of 17 kilometers in length and width. It is bordered to the east by the sea, to the west by the low-lying alluvial plains of the Aude and to the south by the lagoons. The highest point is Pech-Redon, at 214m. The massif is characterized by its high cliffs, which dominate the horizon from the sea, and its canyons and valleys covered in pinewoods, vineyards and garrigue. Mostly based on Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah, wines are predominantly red. Full and well
balanced they stand out for their rich, complex nose and aromas of spice and garrigues

These are Languedoc wines grown with the benefit of the hot southern climate and are just within the Corbières appellation – best known for the rich and perfumed reds from Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre and Carignan .

There are 18 Languedoc-Origin wine appellations/vineyards from the foothills of the Cévennes; to the foot of the Pyrenees, and in the Massif des Corbières, even huddled inside the Montagne Noire amphitheatre [Black Mountain], or simply lying languid on the gentle slopes looking down over the lakes.

Across the 40,000 hectares [≈ 100,000 acres] hosting the 18 Languedoc labels, no wine resembles another, the only consistency being the Mediterranean, ever since ancient times, influencing climate and growth: mild winters, hot and dry Indian summers, scents from the scrubland and the winds carrying the sea spray.

30 years of toil has transformed the Languedoc vineyards: Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah have become the popular vine types of new plantations.  Each vine type boasts its own wine-growing, wine-making and wine-assembly methods, providing structured and well-balanced Languedoc A.O.C. wines. [A.O.C. – Appellation d’Origine Controllée = Origin-Controlled Wines].
