How to Enjoy Languedoc Rosé

Rose wine

Languedoc rosé is crisp, fruity, and vibrant—and usually under $15—the perfect sipper. Read on for tips on how to drink pink.

  • What to look for: Look for “Languedoc” (e.g. Coteaux du Languedoc) on the label
  • Price: Rosé’s rising popularity around the world has caused prices to rise, but Languedoc’s pink sippers remain relatively undiscovered, and therefore some of the best deals available. You can grab a great wine for under $15.
  • Flavors: The wines are dry (meaning no residual sugar) with ripe cherry and strawberry flavors, and refreshing acidity; perfect for deck sipping and summer salad pairing.
  • Food Pairing: The bright acidity makes Languedoc rosés great food wines. Try them with grilled chicken, a mushroom quiche, or a flavorful salad (like strawberry and spinach—the strawberries perfectly match the berry flavors of the wine).
