Languedoc

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.

  • Domaine Magellan Merlot vdp 2018

    Planted in the seventies, makes it one of the oldest Merlot vineyards in the Languedoc! The winemaking followed a classic pattern without over-extraction. No oak was used, although the wine was aged in concrete tank for 20 months. Of course it is a Merlot, but it is primarily a wine from the domaine’s sandstone terroir: spicy smoky, with a great richness and smooth tannins.

  • Domaine-Robert-Vic-Mas-de-la-Source-Sauvignon

    Domaine Robert Vic Mas de la Source Sauvignon 2020

    A softer sauvignon blanc, showing the influence of the warmer south of France. Green apple, citrus and tropical fruit aromas and flavours. Good, but not overpowering finish with softer acid profile and a clean finish.

  • Racine-Pinot-Noir

    Racine Pinot Noir 2019

    Made from Pinot Noir grown at vineyards located between 300 and 400 metres in Limoux (Languedoc). While the Languedoc is not generally accepted as ideal for Pinot Noir, Limoux is an exception. The higher elevation, and therefore cooler vineyards, and considerable distance from the Mediterranean, makes the terroir quite different from the rest of the Languedoc. The region is renowned for using the cooler growing zone for sparkling wine production, long before the creation of Champagne.
