France’s ancient Languedoc-Roussillon wine region is also its most dynamic. Sweeping from Provence to the Spanish border, the Languedoc-Roussillon features craggy mountains, rolling hills, salt flats, and broad plains, harbouring vineyard sites and soils of unrivalled diversity. Warm, dry conditions, cooling Mediterranean breezes, and luminous sunshine give intensely-flavoured grapes. If this weren’t enough, cheap land has attracted a new generation of winemakers, bringing investment, expertise and a new appreciation of the Languedoc-Roussillon’s unique terroir.
