Languedoc Wine

for this region?

 

The people of this region once spoke Occitan, in which one said “oc” instead of “oui” to mean “yes,” hence Langue d’Oc. Though known for making low-quality wines in vast quantity, it nevertheless offers a diverse array of grape varieties and wine styles, and many producers have begun to focus on quality in response to international competition from other exporters of very cheap wine.

The climate is Mediterranean. The workhorse grape Carignan is still the most planted here, but this is changing; Syrah, Grenache, Cinsaut, Mourvedre, and a host of international varieties are also common. The Languedoc is best-known for ripe, intense red wines like St-Chinian, Corbieres, and Faugeres, but one can also find crisp white wines made from Picpoul, sparkling wines from the region of Limoux, and an increasing number of dessert wines.

Cult producers like Mas Jullien and Mas Cal Demoura, whose wines command high prices and worldwide acclaim, are located here Read more »

    The Bila-Haut Cotes de Roussillons Villages Rouge is an excellent bargain year over year; Raspberry notes dominate the bouquet with just a hint of earthiness - almost like Sirop de Framboise. Entry carries the Grenache element with a slightly rustic raspberry/plum flavor - but balanced and only slightly warm on the finish. This is a very sound ... Read More
