Languedoc Day: May 27, 2016

What Wines Should I Buy? 

Languedoc produces a wide range of wine types and styles, including sparkling, white, red and rosé. A good place to start is by buying at least one bottle of each style. Don’t worry! In addition to their variety, Languedoc AOP wines are also very affordable.

Here are some suggestions:

  • Sparkling: Limoux is the original home of sparkling wine (even before Champagne!), offering extremely high quality at a fraction of the price.
  • White: AOP Picpoul de Pinet, a white wine whose name means “lip-stinger” because of its zesty acidity, makes a perfect aperitif and pairs wonderfully with oysters.
  • Red: AOP Corbières is home to wines of all colors, including hearty reds made from primarily Carignan grapes that often smell of “garrigue”, the local name for resinous herbs such as rosemary and thyme.
  • Rosé: Many Languedoc AOPs produce beautiful rosy-hued wines that pair especially well with a salad or charcuterie plate.
