Château des Karantes - Narbonne Plage

Château des Karantes is a magnificent vineyard located in the south of France, in the Languedoc Roussillon Region. The domaine is in the heart of a small valley overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and is just two minutes from the seaside resort towns of Narbonne Plage and St. Pierre sur Mer.

The estate offers a beautiful panoramic view of the Mediterranean Sea with the Pyrenees Mountains visible in the distance. The beautiful winding access to the vineyard through the garrigue fosters a sense of remoteness and contributes to the peaceful surroundings of the estate.

The vineyard is named after a former Bishop of Carcassonne, owner of the estate hundreds of years ago. The estate is 193 hectares and produces 44 hectares of vines. Nestled in the Mediterranean Garrigue, it extends along the limestone, clay and rocky slopes, which form the “Massif” or Ridge of La Clape.

The exceptional South-East/East exposure and proximity to the sea contribute to the production of our quality wines. The entire vineyard is in the Coteaux du Languedoc – La Clape Appelation.

  Specialties

Situated in the Mediterranean Garrigue, Chateau des Karantes is distinguished by its proximity to the Mediterranean Sea and its South-East/East exposure. The inland side of the vineyard is surrounded by the cliffs of La Clape. While the cliffs protect the grapes from the drying “Vent du Nord” (North Winds), the cool breeze from the sea assures the balance and freshness of our wines. The soil is predominantly clay and limestone and allows the production of rich, powerful and aromatic Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre based wines. At the entrance of the estate there is an area of sandy-silty soil, which produces delicate and elegant red and white wines.

The estate is 193 hectares with 44 hectares belonging to the vines, which are almost entirely AOP Languedoc La Clape. The vines are composed of the most traditional Rouge/Red grape varieties of La Clape (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault and Carignan). The Blanc/White vines occupy a small part of the estate (Bourboulenc, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Vermentino, Roussane, Viognier, Terret Blanc). The Terret Blanc is the oldest plot of the vineyard planted in 1927! Some plots of Carignan date back to 1928. As a result of our commitment to producing the highest quality wine we have invested considerably in replacing some plots of vines. 5,7 hectares of Syrah were replanted in 2005, followed by 1 hectare of Mourvèdre and 3,4 ha of Syrah in 2006, 5,5 ha of Syrah in 2007 and 2009 and 1,5 ha of Bourboulenc and Marsanne in 2010, 4.3 ha will be planted in 2011. The average density is 5000 vines/hectare.

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...
