What to look for in Languedoc Wines:

Languedoc Sparkles in Limoux

As sales of bubbly continue to trend, AOP Crémant and Blanquette de Limoux (cray-mon and blon-ket de lee-moo) offer the unique combination of Champagne quality at Prosecco prices: Limoux sparklers are made in the same was as Champagne but retail for far less. This combination makes Limoux an ideal go-to wine to dress up a weekday dinner, as a gift for the discerning hostess or to help celebrate a special occasion.

 

Picpoul = ‘Pick Moules’

AOP Picpoul de Pinet (peek-pool de pee-nay), made from the delightful Piquepoul grape, is a fresh, brightly acidic wine made in the coastal region of Pinet. Similar to Sauvignon Blanc, it pairs perfectly with seafood. So when you pick Picpoul, pick moules (mussels, in French).

 

Red Wines:

Most wines from Languedoc are red blends made from Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignan, and Cinsault. They’re seductively
rich, earthy wines with dark berry and herb notes, and they pair phenomenally with a wide range of dishes. Search out wines like AOP Minervois (min-er-vwah) and AOP Corbières (cor-bee-air), among other great appellations.

 

 

Muscat:

Have a sweet tooth? The Vins Doux Naturel wines of Languedoc are right up your alley. These sweet whites are generally sold in a smaller (375mL) bottle and are the perfect ending to a great meal or night. Add a little luxury to your weeknight!
