The appellation Côteaux du Languedoc became Languedoc AOC in 2007. A vast regional appellation it intersects almost all the other appellation areas of Languedoc and Roussillon. Languedoc AOC thus extends over the departments of Hérault, Aude, Gard and Pyrénées-Orientales and produces red wine, rosé wine and white wine. Carignan, Monastrell, Shiraz, Cinsault, Grenache Noir, Lledoner pelut, Piquepoul, Terret, Cournoise are the grape varieties used to make these red wines, while white wines are made from Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Bourboulenc, Marsanne, Roussanne, Ugni Blanc, Tourbat, Viogner, Vermentino (Rolle)... The list of the main and complementary grape varieties is so long that it is difficult to define a typical style as the soils are so varied. The common denominator would be the sunshine which makes them structured and bold wines. The quality of this vast AOC continues to improve, although it is still relatively unknown. This does not prevent wine-lovers and connoisseurs alike from finding the raw gem made perfectly to their taste!
