The land of the Occitan language (Langue-d’Oc) around France's sunny western Mediterranean coast is the world's biggest wine region, and also one of its most dynamic. We’re witnessing an authentic transformation from a figurative factory of quaffing plunk to a treasure trove of wines reflecting the terroir of ancient hillsides planted by the Romans. This land of Carignan is exploring other noble varieties like Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Cinsaut and taking a much more conscientious approach to winemaking. We’ll explore specific appellations such as Picpoul de Pinet (Vignerons de Florensac), Minervois (Château de Cordes, Château Coupe Roses), Corbières (Domaine de Fontsainte and Domaine des 2 Ânes), Pic Saint Loup (Ermitage de Pic Saint Loup), and Saint-Chinian (Domaine Rimbert). And we’ll taste stylish, flavor-packed cuvées simply labelled “Languedoc” (Les Darons), and Limoux (oldest sparkling in the world?). Wine Team Leader Jorge comments, “We’re truly excited about these wines, their versatility and value!”
