Bold wine blends undoubtedly reign supreme in the south of France, and no region takes this to heart more than the Languedoc-Roussillon. The region’s value-oriented red blends—consisting of such grapes as Cinsault, Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre—tend to be rich, full of brambly fruit, and a bit spicy. Plus, each bottle seems imbued with distinct garrigue aromas of fern, rosemary, and brush.
The small-scaled and little-known producers of the Languedoc-Roussillon make marvelously hearty winter reds that balance innovation and classic French terroir—never being afraid to experiment but consistently releasing reds that are true to the beloved terroir of Southern France.
