The Languedoc region is one of France’s most exciting regions where winemakers can produce quality wines at attractive prices. This Chardonnay has all the hallmarks of a white burgundy: succulent melon, pear, citrus and pineapple fruit flavours, hints of hazelnuts and a smooth finish. Delicious on its own, and with fish, seafood, chicken, pork and soft cheeses (Brie and Camembert) and blue cheeses such as Roquefort. (DB) Oaked, France, Languedoc, 13%
The Languedoc Roussillon region covers a vast area under vine comprising many different appellations. 263,000 hectares are covered by vines. To put that in context Australia has 148,000 and South Africa 92,000. The different terroirs and landscapes allows for enormous versatility and variation. Over the past 25 years the forward thinking producers have recognised the real potential at their fingertips and have adopted techniques that allow them to harness their assets and produce internationally recognised wines, that give more established regions a real run for their money.
