February 2012: The March edition of Decanter Magazine carries an in-depth feature on the Languedoc, and recommends the Blanquette de Limoux from Rives-Blanques

Andrew Jefford, the Contributing Editor of the British wine magazine Decanter (and winner of the Louis Roderer International Feature Writer of the Year award), and Rosemary George, Master of Wine,  put together an eight page feature on the Languedoc, ‘a country apart’,  in Decanter’s March issue.

Of the 13 wines ‘picked’  from the region’s top seven wine growing areas, two were from Limoux:  the Rives-Blanques Blanquette de Limoux was awarded four stars and a magnificent 18 points.

Jefford described the Languedoc as ‘a region of aspiration’.  Others offer ‘hierarchies’, he said, « but the Languedoc offers discoveries ».

« Here you can discover grandeur » he wrote,  and wines « exciting enough to make your hair stand up on end ».
