September 2016: The eminent and estimable Jancis Robinson MW tastes our 2015 vintage.

Jancis Robinson MW tasted through our 2015 wines and published her tasting notes today on in an article entitled « Languedoc: France’s Treasure Chest », a region which has  been ‘transformed’ in the time she has known it.

« The better quality terrain, particularly the evocative hills, are now home to a host of hardworking, well-trained or at least well-advised wine producers and thoroughly driven wine lovers. » she said.  « There is some really great quality here … selling at prices much lower than would be charged in regions with more of a reputation ».

« Traditional grape varieties chock full of flavour » caught her attention in particular, perhaps explaining the outstanding « Bravo! » she accorded our mauzac, Occitania.  Another favourite in our rage was clearly the Blanquette de Limoux, also made from mauzac, which she described as « a really interesting sparkling wine ».   Trilogie,  « complex and arresting »,  was given a resounding « Gorgeous ».  And for the chenin blanc, Dédicace: « Well done! »

Mrs Robinson also chose our mauzac, Occitania, as her Wine of the Week this month.  That article can be read here.
