The Languedoc AOC was created in 2007 and replaced the former Côteaux-du-Languedoc AOC. The appellation produces rosé wines that are constantly improving in quality. A terroir that is still very little known, but has nothing to envy to Provence.

Tout savoir sur les vins rosés Languedoc AOC

A LARGE APPELLATION


If rosé wine has long been associated with Provence, where it first emerged, the Languedoc region is in turn becoming a leader in the production of terroir rosé and is proudly proclaiming the colour!

Under the Languedoc AOC, there are some refined and complex wines being produced that are more than just "light summer wines". The appellation is trying to define specific specifications for its production and to structure the offer in order to meet the demand in a more qualitative way. Following the example of Domaine Puech-Haut, there are prestigious wines intended for gastronomy: top-of-the-range wines which naturally tend towards wines with great ageing potential. Among all the rosés, those from the Languedoc are complete, terroir wines, expressive wines developing a beautiful aromatic richness. A personality affirmed by this characteristic fruitiness, especially when the appellation plays the mono-varietal card.
