South of France

  • Monday, Day 28/09/2020
  • Important both in terms of value for money and for the large quantities of wine produced, the vineyards of this part of France are mostly split between two regions, Languedoc and Roussillon. For red wines, grape varieties grown are principally Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, blended in different proportions to create different styles, from herbal Corbieres to the silky Fitou and full-bodied Coteaux du Languedoc. The whites of Minervois are particularly pretty.
