Languedoc-Roussillon : local red and organic wines
Consisting of two vineyards, Languedoc and Roussillon, this region has achieved a good performance during the last twenty years. As a matter of fact, this region was known for its poor quality products for a long period of time. But today this bad reputation belongs to past. The red wines are of greater taste interest and moreover, the wine makers had a good idea to move towards organic wine production in order to make fine red wines. This French wine region has gained a foothold on the market and managed to produce some vintages worth tasting. On our website you can discover some vintages from local châteaux and estates that were carefully selected by our experts.
A region of multiple AOCs and rich terroir
The origins of Languedoc vineyards go back to the Roman era as it was created following the Provence vineyards. Dispersed over 4 departments, it occupies more than 246 000 hectares. The vast majority of wine produced is red (about 85%), but also some dry and sweet white wine and some rosé. All these vintages are characterized by their mediterranean aromas and are getting increasingly looked after by french and international consumers. There are numerous grape varieties in Languedoc-Roussillon, such as Grenache Noir, Syrah, Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Carignan, Chardonnay (for sparkling wines), Bourboulenc, Marsanne and Roussanne (for white wines). Diverse appellations perfectly reflect the particularities of this wine region : Collioure, Banyuls, Muscat de Rivesaltes, Coteaux du Languedoc, Corbières, Limoux etc. Organic vintages have emerged progressively and some remarkable fine wines became BIO.
