When you drink a Languedoc wine, you can almost hear the cicadas singing. Thanks to a Mediterranean climate with aromas of scrubland, the vineyards of Languedoc flourish during the hot and dry summers at the foot of the Pyrenees, in the Massif des Corbières, or on a gentle slope towards the ponds.
It is obvious that the Languedoc-Roussillon vineyards benefit from an incomparable know-how, thanks to the great diversity of its terroirs and the marriage that takes place between the different climates of the region. With twenty-three different appellations (Aude, Corbières, Fitou, Limoux, Muscat, Vins de France, etc.), the wines of the AOC Languedoc are not the same. They all have one common characteristic: the aromas of garrigue and their sunny notes. Grenache, Mourvèdre, Picpoul, Muscat, Cabernet-Sauvignon, Cinsault, Carignan, Bourboulenc, Clairette and Syrah are the flagship varieties of Languedoc, which offer our taste buds structured and full-bodied wines. Languedoc is best known for its ripe, intense red wines like Saint Chinian, Corbieres and Faugeres, but one can also find crisp white wines made from Picpoul (such as Picpoul de Pinet), sparkling wines from the region of Limoux and an increasing number of dessert wines. Sip them quietly and spread some good vibes while you settle and enjoy your view from the Pic Saint-Loup!
Languedoc is one of the main wine-growing regions in France. Lower Languedoc is home to some of the largest beaches and captivating towns of Montpellier and Nîmes. Those who do not want to spend their holidays being grilled on a beach may want to discover the old Languedoc, a beautiful region located far from the cities and the coastal strip. You will find a fascinating mix of hills, caves, canyons, forests and sunny plateaus. Languedoc is a unique blend between Catalonia, the Grand Canyon and Miami...!
