The latest vintages of our lovely Château Clamens Rouge and Rosé are on their way from France. We expect to have them in the warehouse and ready to go by the first of the year.
A red blend and a rosé from Château Clamens landed on our shores in late April, and we are busy getting these wonderful bottles stocked with our distributors. And last week we received our latest shipment with two delicious new red blends from Château de Fontenelles.
The ruby color of Château Clamens Rouge avows the vibrant fruity nature of this delicious red blend.
The lovely Château Clamens Rosé is light and delicate in color, which belies its lush flavor. This wine also is crafted from Négrette, the region's native grape.
We are also excited to introduce a brand new Clamens wine, 2019 Le Petit Clamens. This full-bodied ruby red wine boasts notes of strawberry, raspberry and blackberry on the nose, leading to an equally fruity and intense palate. It recently was awarded 90 points by Wine & Spirits Magazine.
The Clamens family began making wine in 1868 at their chateau estate near Toulouse, France. Today, winemaker Jean Michel Begue runs the Château vineyards and winery. A mixture of heat-retaining sandy loam and clay soil, a beautifully balanced climate boasting more than 2,000 hours of sunshine a year, and a dedication to environmentally-responsible farming techniques, produces wines of superb quality.
The Négrette grape thrives in this unique terrioir. When poured, aromas of fresh, ripe fruit delight the nose. The palate is complex, driven by flavors of black current and blackberry, opening into soft tastes of violet and a hint of liquorice.
Château Clamens was recently certified with France's prestigious Farm with High Environmental Value (HEV). This certification is awarded to farms that voluntarily utilize environmentally-friendly practices associated with biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategy, management of fertilizer use and management of water.
Check with your local distributor to find out if they are carrying these stunning French wines.
