Languedoc in the Sud de France is starting to acquire glamour and prestige.
Constant innovation and enthusiasm from international and French winemakers moving to the region has raised quality to a level where the wines are now taken seriously.
One much loved wine maker, the dynamic Katie of Domaine Jones, has teamed up with Naked Wines. A special offer will be live on MarketPlace this Thursday, 9th May. See Naked Wines’ website for all their wines.
A couple of other Languedoc wine recommendations are:
La Traversée, £24.99, Virgin Wines. When wine buyers of big companies battle bees and wild boar to make their own wine, you can be sure it’s a labour of love. A huge yet silky, Grenache blend. Big and beautiful.
Domaine de l’Escarpolette, Rouge, discounted to £12, Roberson. This Cinsault / Carignan blend from old vines in Montpeyroux is ‘natural’ without the scary hairiness. Made with evident love. Enjoy it with someone you love too.
