Pierre Clavel is a renowned winegrower. He created the Domaine there 30 years ago, and he is one the first winegrower in Languedoc to make beautiful wines and to think the terroir of Languedoc was amazing (Her father, Jean Clavel, created The Appelation Origine Contrôlée Coteaux du Languedoc). The Clavel name has been associated with vineyards in the Languedoc area for generations. Today, Domaine Clavel is run by Pierre, but in fact it was his father – the talented wine historian Jean Clavel – who was responsible for founding the AOC Coteaux de Languedoc appellation.
This wine starts with aromas of red berries raspberries which are woven together with white pepper, lavender, wild herbs. On the palate this is medium-bodied with lovely overall balance and notable acidity keeping it fresh through the silky finish.
