One of the seven major regional IGP areas for the production of country wines in France. The other six are Atlantique, Comtés Rhodaniens, Comté Tolosan, Méditerranée, Pays d'Oc and Val de Loire. It was created in 2018 and applies to red wines, rosé wines and white wines; which can also be marketed early as Nouveau or Primeur. The area covers the entire dual region of Languedoc-Roussillon in all the communes of the four departments of Aude, Gard, Hérault and Pyrénées-Orientales, as well as some communes in the department of Lozere. Mainly red wines (55%) and rosé wines (35%) are produced here. All varieties permitted in the dual region are allowed in any use. The most important red wine varieties are Terret Noir, Grenache Noir (Garnacha Tinta), Carignan Noir, Cinsault (Cinsaut) and Marselan.
The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
