Elemental Languedoc – The Coast

One way to think about the AOCs of Languedoc is to divide them into five groups defined by similar “elemental” features and wine styles. Here we take a look at “The Coast”:

  • Strongly defined by Mediterranean climates
  • Abundant sunshine, good winds and breezes, more even diurnal ranges
  • Soils tend to produce softer, more lush wines
  • Examples include: Picpoul de Pinet, La Clape, Grès de Montpellier
