Description

Wine from the Languedoc-Roussillon region is produced in the South of France, ranging from the Mediterranean coast to Provence. Cabernet, Merlot, Mourvedre, Grenache, and Syrah are some of the most important red grapes in the region.

Most wine producers in this region produce blends, as opposed to single varietal wines. There are some outstanding values to be found in wines from this region.

Languedoc-Roussillon is the biggest wine producing region in the world, responsible for over 1/3 of France’s wine production.

Although the region has been known to produce cheap table wine in the past, many vineyards and cooperatives are replacing lesser quality vines with higher quality wine varieties and production methods. The quality has been steadily improving since the 1970s when the region was best known for churning out cheap jug wine.

The two regions of Languedoc-Roussillon produce distinct styles of red wine, although they are lumped together.The Languedoc is known for fruit-forward and full-bodied wines that can also be quite complex. Roussillon produces riper and juicier blends, as well as late-harvest and fortified wines.
