Jancis Robinson MW tasted through our 2015 wines and published her tasting notes today on www.jancisrobinson.com 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.
