More properly called Languedoc-Roussillon, this is a region of Southern France which spans the Mediterranean coastline from the French border with Spain to the region of Provence. The region is very hot, which makes it conducive to growing both a large amount and a wide variety of grapes. It is also one of the few areas in France where organic viticulture is possible because the climate is very dry, at least during the grape growing season.
Wines from the Languedoc can carry an enormous number of names, ranging from broad regional designations like Vin de Pays d’Oc, which are labelled varietally, to very specific geographical classifications, like Corbières and Minervois, that are generally produced with a blend of grapes like Grenache, Carignane, Mourvedre and Syrah for reds or Grenache Blanc, Roussanne and Marsanne for whites.
The name “La Source” (the stream in French) and the image of a river fish on the label point to the esthetic and practice of the estate, which strives to reflect the natural environment from which the wines have evolved, as well as addressing the ecologically sustainable principles which guide their endeavor.
Made from Pinot Noir grown at vineyards located between 300 and 400 metres in Limoux. Softly-textured, juicy, crunchy red fruit with just a hint of tobacco leaf and winter spice, this is an eminently drinkable and pleasurable pinot. The best places to produce this delicate grape variety are always on the cool side, and here the altitude of the vineyard and influence from the ocean slow down the ripening season and keep the alcohol levels relatively low and the acidity lively. An extremely appealing pinot for both Burgundy lovers and red wine fans in general.
