Ruby purplish. Complex nose of red and black berries, red meat, dried garrigue herbs and spicy notes. Full-bodied, ripe fruity taste, velvety texture with a slight graininess in the background and a powerful finish. This is built to last 10 years. Starting with the 2015 vintage, La Clape is an official AOC and no longer a "village" of the larger Languedoc appellation.
