Music and wine are close companions. Mozart celebrated good old Bacchus, and Neil Diamond sings of the feel-good factor from a glass of red wine. There are a host of parallels in the language used to describe music and wine. Turns of phrase such as “dancelike lightness” or “refreshing finish” could characterise a sonata by Frederic Chopin just as tellingly as a white Cru made with the Bourboulenc grape indigenous to southern France.

Music and wine are also true soulmates when it comes to their genesis. Just like a composer blends melodies, rhythms and chords into a piece of music, so too the winegrower composes his wine, often from a variety of different grapes and vineyard parcels.

In 1807 the Hug family took over a music shop in the Augustinergasse in Zurich and turned it into one of the leading music establishments in Switzerland. In 1993 Erika Hug Harke and her husband Eckard Harke-Hug discovered a fairytale wine château in the idyllic La Clape mountain range between the city of Narbonne and the sea. Since then, Château Laquirou has been painstakingly restored, little by little. Today, grapes mature at the estate into fine, full-bodied wines with a Mediterranean charm. Or as a musician might say: successful compositions for the palate.

  Specialties

The selection of wines from Château Laquirou ranges from light white Albus and the excellently structured rosé Sarriette to the fully textured Ausines and Aureus that are matured in oak barriques and are the estate’s premium reds. All Laquirou wines have one thing in common: They unite the sensuality of southern France with the freshness of the nearby sea.

The premium wine of the estate:
Aureus Prestige
 
The premium wine of the estate is the result of a two-fold selection. First, only grapes are used from very old vines that are rooted in the best locations, the Coteaux. Second, for this blend of Syrah (80 percent), Grenache and Carignan, only three or four barrels that have developed superbly are selected.

Aromas of red and dark berries, backed by precious spice and herbal notes. Concentrated on the palate with an abundance of fruit, fine-grained tannins and mature acidity. Long finish. Average age of vine: 50 years Ageing, 12 to 18 months in new French oak barrels Mariage: Spicy Sisteron lamb, Châteaubriand (double sirloin steak), rabbit loin, mushroom ragout, aged raw-milk cheese. Optimal maturity:
Up to eight years after harvesting...

La Clape

La Clape

The La Clape AOC is located where the Coteaux du Languedoc and Corbières appellations overlap and is well known for its vineyards that lie on a limestone outcropping that extends across the entire region. The region produces red, rose and white wines that are fully representative of the region and the reds show particularly well, often times considered a vin de garde. The majority of the wines of Gruissan are produced on the Clape. This little mountain, situated between Narbonne and Gruissan was an isle at the time of prehistoric man. The Clape, gets its name from the Occitan word « Clapas » meaning a pile of stones, and reaches a height of 214 m. The pine trees cover the slopes of the Clape. The garrigue covers the plateaux and the thyme, the rosemary and the lavender that invite you to promenade are what give the wines their character...

Small loop around the Pech Redon but it is only a variant which allows to discover the joys of "bartassage" for those who do not know. Then the tour continues quietly with a beautiful view if the sun is to the game. It leads us to the Vigie-round fire monitoring. After borrowing a path of vineyards and made a little road, the meal period may be close to the viewpoint which offers a beautiful view of Narbonne and its Cathedral .. A little further away, downhill near pines before finding the paths that will allow us to see the Virgin of Cruques and end up on the shelf in the scrubland of Clape where one could see, on February 27, a wild iris multitude of all colors. This is a very beautiful hike by the in the specified direction because we have a beautiful view through the circuit and it also can not cross private property Happy trails...
