Wines from Languedoc

The Languedoc appellation is based on a vineyard dating from the 5th century B.C., that is to say from the Greek period. It can therefore be described as the oldest vineyard in France. Stretching from the Spanish border to the city of Nîmes, the AOC includes all the controlled appellation areas of Languedoc-Rousillon. The Languedoc appellation replaced the Coteaux-du-Languedoc appellation in 2007, after the latter was named in 1985.

Nestling in the Black Mountain and bordering the Cévennes, the vineyard is made up of very diverse terroirs, yet with a great typicity of the wines of the Languedoc appellation. Made essentially of hard limestone and schist with a scent of garrigue, it also grows in gravelly soils drained by the rivers of the Languedoc.

The Mediterranean climate, marked by hot and dry summers is compensated by the incidence of the relief. The diversity of the terroirs and the specific characteristics of each region have determined the classification into different pedo-climatic zones (classification grouping together climate and soils).

The red and rosé wines of the Languedoc appellation are mainly made from Grenache Noir, Carignan, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and of course Syrah. The reds are structured, full-bodied and particularly generous wines. The rosés are fruity, yet very supple. As for the whites, the grape varieties are mainly Clairette, Grenache Bland, Bourboulenc and Picpoul. The latter are fruity and go ideally with fish and seafood.
