 Our Wines by Region - Languedoc
Languedoc The Languedoc-Roussillon area is one of the largest expanses of vine-growing areas in the world and stretches for 120 miles along the Mediterranean coast. There are approximately 750,000 acres (300,000 hectares) of southern France included in the Languedoc, from the Rhône River to the Spanish border and the Pyr‚n‚es and producing one-third of all French wine. The area produces mainly full- and medium-bodied red wines, light and dry ros‚s and an assortment of dry, sweet and sparkling white wines. The principal grapes are the Carignan, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Syrah. Most of the wines are "Vin de Pays", country wines, and are perfect as "everyday" wines.

Rives-Blanques Lagremas d’Aur 2006 (#35-13) Dessert Wine
$27.00

Lagremas d'Aur means 'Tears of Gold' in Occitan, the ancient language of Languedoc.  This is s sweetie from Rives-Blanques, a truly delicious, delectable "curiosity" of their range. Made from chenin blanc harvested in October 2006 and mauzac harvested in November 2006, the grapes were picked at exactly the point where their naturally concentrated sugars were perfectly balanced by natural freshness. 

Because the Limoux appellation does not allow for naturally sweet wines made from these grape varieties, “Lagremas d'Aur" has to be labelled as a “Vin de France”, the lowest category in the pecking order of French wines. It was fermented and aged for three years in seasoned French oak barrels, and then aged another year in the bottle.
