Domaine De Lamy

Languedoc, languedoc France

Domaines de Lamy takes its name from the ‘De Lamy’ family who own Château de Fontarèche. The Château is surrounded by an impressive square of 160 hectares of vines, which are sustainably farmed and edged by 10 hectares of forest. The vineyards are divided by the road: those on the north side of the D11, beside and behind the Château, are classified as Corbières AOC, while those to the south of the road are IGP.

The vines sit on an ancient limestone terrace and are rooted in a combination of gravel and limestone soil covered by large pebbles; water is easily absorbed but not well retained. The Mediterranean heat can therefore be challenging to manage in the vineyards, and irrigation, when permitted, is widely utilised in the region. Fontarèche has two kilometres of irrigation channels that surround their vineyards, allowing for effective drip irrigation when necessary, which in turn results in full physiological ripeness, giving wines with lovely vibrancy and supple tannins.

The Tapisserie range is sourced from the IGP vineyards belonging to the estate, located south of the D11. The Tapisserie Blanc is a blend of mainly Colombard with 20% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Vermentino. The wine has a lively character with notes of fresh grapefruit and lemon. A blend of Carignan, Mourvèdre and Grenache Noir, the Tapisserie Rouge is vibrant and juicy with a core of pure red fruit and smooth tannins.
