The Young Winery Clos de Nines

While some winemakers continue the tradition of a family estate, for others it is a new life. Isabelle Mangeart discovered this spot near Poussan in Languedoc and began a passionate winemaking career. In the heart of the garrigue, Isabelle and Christian run Clos de Nines. The garrigue is the unique rocky landscape known for aromatic herbs and shrubs. Winemakers in the Languedoc say it influences the flavour of their wines. For Isabelle, their red wine L’Orée best highlights the distinctive terroir.

The Vineyard of Clos de Nines

The team of Clos de Nines are attentive to the needs of their vines and to the environment. They harvest and prune manually and maintain low yields to ensure good quality. In 2013 they decided to become a fully organic producer and achieved certification in 2016. The vineyards are planted on clay-limestone soil. An interesting characteristic of the soil is the presence of fossilised oyster shells.

The Grape Varieties of Clos de Nines

The age of the vines varies between 10 and 80 years in age. The oldest varietals are Carignan and Alicante. Although the name suggests otherwise, Alicante is a French grape, a crossing between Grenache and Petit Bouschet. It has a very deep colour and winemakers like to blend it with lighter coloured grapes. For their reds they also grow Syrah and Cinsault. Cinsault is popular with Languedoc winemakers because it can tolerate strong heat. They grow Viognier, Vermentino, Roussanne and Grenache Blanc for white wines. Clos de Nines has had considerable success despite their short time in the wie industry. The winery has received regular awards from Wine Spectator, Wine Advocate, Guide Hachette, Iand nternational Wine Challenge over the years.
