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 »

Languedoc on Snooth

  • La Condamine Paulignan Minervois 2015

    Snoothrank:

    The opaque, deep cherry red wine exudes a perfume of Mediterranean brush (garigue), and spicy, peppery plum. The entry is slightly rustic with white pepper, black cherry, plum and leather predominating. This panoply of flavour lingers only on the back palate for a satisfying finish. Great value from southern France. 89. Read More
