Château de Clapier Calligrappe Red

This medium-bodied red stands up well to spicier foods.  The Luberon climate is particularly suited to Grenache, which makes the wine beautifully earthy.

Château de Clapier Calligrappe Red
 
About This Wine:
Located in the village of Mirabeau in the Luberon, this family vineyard was owned by the Marquis de Mirabeau until the French Revolution. The property was purchased in the 1880s by an ancestor of the current owner and winemaker, Thomas Montagne. The Côtes du Luberon is in the extreme southeastern part of the winemaking Rhône Valley, and Luberon wines are not as well known in the U.S. as Côtes du Rhônes (even with the publicity from a not-very-good movie with Russell Crowe about the region). Although Clapier was well-reviewed in the latest Guide Hachette, the winery has never before exported to the U.S. M. Montagne makes traditional Luberon wines along with new vintages outside of the traditional – and traditionally approved – formulations. The Calligrappe is a medium-bodied red that stands up well to spicier foods. The Luberon climate is particularly good for Grenache, and this wine is beautifully earthy with just the right amount of spice.
