What are the best wines of Languedoc-Roussillon?
The Languedoc-Roussillon vineyard is one of the most extensive, with 229 hectares of vines. This vineyard, which has only been in existence for 40 years, aims to identify the terroirs and to integrate new grape varieties.
Today, Languedoc-Roussillon produces a rich range of wines; white, red, rosé, and even sparkling. There are red grape varieties, including carignan, grenache, syrah, mourvèdre, cinsault and white grape varieties such as grenache,picpoul, bourboulenc, macabeu, clairette. For sparkling wines, we speak of chardonnay and chenin. It is a region that offers a wide choice of wines for its lovers.
The Languedoc region is both mountainous and maritime. There are white wines to be enjoyed with the pink oysters of Marseillan and tannic red wine that could accompany a good meat.
Classifications are made according to the latest tastings and discoveries. Of the most famous, we find the Picpoul de Pinet, the Saint Chinian, the Côtes du Roussillon-Villages, but also Les Glorieuses du Clos Marie having the appellation Coteaux du Languedoc AOC or the Clos du Pic.
The wines of Languedoc-Roussillon have competition; indeed, the wines of this region are close to the wines of Provence. The latter are just as qualitative, and are located on different soils older you are just as present on the national and international market.
As with all wines, the qualification of "best wine" depends on the palate of the consumer, the taste and aromas that he seeks.
