Languedoc co-operatives asked to maintain wine prices, at the very least

“There is no reason to be pessimistic in the region. We are fortunate to have a diversified range of wines covering appellations and PGIs, which gives us the flexibility to adapt our product profiles to suit market demand”, commented Ludovic Roux.

The Terrasses du Larzac’s 5th birthday celebration.
05 November 2019 19:06
When I was first writing about the Languedoc 30 years ago, no one had ever heard of the Terrasses du Larzac. In my book, The wines of the South of France, published in 2001, I gave it a fleeting mention. Now look how things have changed.

Wat doet mij dit naar de zomer vakantie verlangen.

Gérard Bertrand bottles his new brand in a ceramic bottle
17 May 2019 20:04
Will Gérard Bertrand's ceramic bottle be a major innovation in the wine department? The launch of the ‘Art de vivre’ brand in ceramic bottles recalling materials used to make amphora will most certainly be the stand-out packaging of 2019. Sporting etchings reminiscent of Jean Cocteau or Picasso in Vallauris (individual sensitivities will be the judge), the bottle is unlikely to go unnoticed, not only because of its colours but also because the colour of the wine is hidden.

Cinsault’s Fresh New Look
21 August 2019 19:28
Open and bright, with soft tannins and ripe red fruit notes, Cinsault (or Cinsaut) is often used as a blending grape. Historically, when wine fashions have turned bigger and bolder, its roots have been ripped out across Languedoc-Roussillon, Rhône and Provence: It went from a peak of more than 125,000 acres in the late 1970s to less than 50,000 acres today. But as warmer vintages become more frequent, some of the variety’s “flaws” are increasingly seen as desirable qualities. Its yields can become too high, especially in young vines, but Cinsault manages to retain acidity and keep its sugars low in even the hottest conditions, providing much-needed freshness to red wines and rosés. In Provence, the variety can make up a significant proportion of the latter.

French Authorities Give A Corsican Wine Producer The Blues
12 August 2019 15:39
There’s red wine, white wine, pink (rosé) wine and, some say, orange wine, (which appears more like amber). The first color is closest to the natural outside color of red grapes and the second color mimicks the inside color of all grape varieties; rosé and orange wines are the result of certain processes. But if wine was the color blue, what do you imagine would be the reason for that? And what do you imagine the wine would be called?

Elk jaar moet ik twee flessen rosé hebben!
Maar dit jaar pas in augustus verkrijgbaar en bij mijn wijnhandel lagen ze niet eens in de winkel.
Ging op naam en geen flesje extra?
Alles gaat naar de VS.....
Laat Trump het maar niet horen grinning smiley
Ik koop er twee, drink er één en bewaar de ander voor later.
Vorig jaar blijkbaar dat drinken vergeten eye rolling smiley

Languedoc: raise a glass in France's hidden organic wine gem
23 July 2019 19:13
With a wine-making history stretching back to the Greeks, you'll find plenty to toast in southern France

Think of a French wine holiday and your mind instinctively drifts towards Champagne and Burgundy, or Bordeaux and Beaujolais.

Organic wine-lovers, however, know there is only one region to visit: Languedoc, France’s secret treasure.

This Powerful Little Grape Is About To Change The Wine Scene
02 July 2019 19:12
During the 18th century French Revolution, disgruntled citizens shook pitchforks and oohed with fascination at an invention called the guillotine; they extracted their wrath on wigged and heeled members of the aristocracy, considering them out of touch with their peasant subjects. In 1793, near the base of the Pyrenees peaks in southern France, a band of rebels from the town of Lescar mobbed a château to the north known as Cabidos. They torched everything flammable within stone structures and were about to murder the resident Du Vignau de Trubessé family when the baroness (and mother) lured the attackers to a cellar and provided them with wine. The mob drank themselves to such inebriation that they abandoned their planned executions.

Mediterranean Climate — Why it’s Great for Winegrowing
21 May 2019 19:28
Climate is the weather of a particular place over a long period of time. And it is arguably the single, most-important factor determining the character of fine wine from any given region. Climate largely determines which grape varieties are viable, how ripe they usually get, and if there will be significant vintage variation. We often hear that California’s top wine regions have a Mediterranean climate, but what does that mean?

A French region calculates the true cost of its wine
01 April 2019 19:36
Getting out of the unprofitable bottom end of the market is a priority for many wine producers, whether they are major producers like Constellation—who have said this is “urgent” for their business—or small European winegrowers. A project conducted by the Conseil Interprofessionnel des Vins AOC du Languedoc & IGP Sud de France (Languedoc Wines Council) has demonstrated why winegrowers literally cannot afford to be in this segment.
