A great hub for a series of delicious Southern French reds


The Languedoc is the area between Montpellier, Toulouse and the Rhône, encompassing some of the wildest, and most beautiful, areas in France. The area grows wild with garrigue (the wild rosemary, thyme and fennel scrub) and is hot, sunny and pretty unspoiled. The wines tend to take the names of their local villages, like Fitou, Minervois, Saint Chinian and all have a unique flavour based on local grapes like Carignan and more well known Grenache and Syrah. Whilst they all differ, they share an unfussy friendliness. With bold fruit flavours, hints of those herbs and gentle oaking these are crowd pleasing, smile inducing wines.

Things you should know

Top Tip: You won't always find Languedoc on th e label, so look for Fitou and Corbieres as good entry points and then get exploring
Specific Food Match: These are great wines for herby marinades, sausages and lamb steaks. They also rock with a ratatouille.
