Domain Clos de l’Amandaie

WHO WE ARE

Clos de l’Amandaie is a 20-hectare estate in the Languedoc, situated about 25 km northwest of Montpellier. Fifth generation vigneron Philippe Peytavy owns and manages the estate, which he founded with his wife Stéphanie in 2002.  Their vineyards lie in clay-limestone soil on slopes and a plateau not far from the ruins of the Château d’Aumelas, home of the medieval Lords of Montpellier. The organically-farmed vineyards benefit from a microclimate formed by the maritime influence of the Mediterranean to the south combined with the cool, gentle winds of the Massif Central to the north.

 

The top wines of the estate are classified in red as Grès de Montpellier: Clos de l’Amandaie rouge (15% Cinsault, with the remainder of equal parts of Grenache Noir, Syrah, and Carignan) and Huis Clos (50%/ of Grenache Noir and Syrah).  And in white as AOC Languedoc: Clos de l’Amandaie and Huis Clos blanc, derived from Grenache Blanc and Roussanne.  In addition, the domaine produces a line of IGP Pays d’Oc wines and a rare late harvest wine made from Petit Manseng.
