Fresh on the palate with raspberry and strawberry notes and a touch of vanilla and pepper. Tannins are very elegant. Serve with meat or try with dark chocolate truffles.

The region – Languedoc
Stretching along France’s Mediterranean rim to the west of Provence, the Languedoc has been cultivating vines since at least 125BC. With a constant drive for improving quality, the region today provides some of France’s best values. Spanning every style of wine from sparkling to still, bone dry to lusciously rich, the Languedoc offers something for everyone.
