Les Clos Perdus

Paul Old of Les Clos Perdus

Paul Old of Les Clos Perdus

Lost vineyard sites, secretly tucked away throughout the garrigue laden hills and valleys of the Midi. Old vines, many at 50, 60, 75+ years of age with names like mourvedre, grenache, carignan and cinsault. Throughout the Languedoc & Roussillon there exist numerous “lost vineyards” just waiting to be re-discovered.

Many of these small vineyards had been disregarded by larger producers because of their isolation, their low cropping potential and their inability to be machine worked. However with passion, talent and lots of hard work, fantastic and memorable wines can be made from such sites that bear the unmistakable imprint of this gorgeous countryside.

This ethos is precisely what inspired friends Paul Old and Hugo Stewart to establish their modest winery aptly named: Les Clos Perdus (the lost vineyards) back in 2003. With extreme dedication, and working out of a modest garage for use as a cellar, these lost vineyards forged their identities through the wines of Les Clos Perdus.

Fast forward to 2015 where the wines are still being artisanally made at the same tiny cellar in the seaside town of Peyriac de Mer. A few personnel changes have transpired, as Paul been joined by Ben Adams, who is principally in charge of managing the vineyards. Thanks to the hard work and passion of Paul and Ben, the Lost Vineyards have been re-discovered and truly appreciated.

Les Clos Perdus “Cuveé 111” Corbières

Gutsy and substantial aptly describe Les Clos Perdus’ Carignan based red from Corbières. Crushed red fruits matched with a delicate nuance or hibiscus and sanguine like minerality make it a perfect match for braised meats, stews and hearty vegetarian fare.

 

Les Clos Perdus “Mire la Mer” Corbières

This Mourvèdre based red comes from 40+ year old vines which are planted in heavy clay soils within a short walk to the Mediterranean Ocean. Similar in style and substance to the formidable reds of Bandol, Mire La Mer is a fantastic partner to roasted leg of lamb or beef daube.
