Join Richard Lane as he explores the dynamic region of the Languedoc in the South of France.
In this webinar, Richard Lane, journalist and WSET Diploma student, will take you through the large and poorly understood region of the Languedoc in southern France. Once having endured a poor reputation for producing high volumes of vin de table, the region is undergoing a revolution, with a number of innovative new producers taking advantage of cheaper land prices and the Midi’s favourable Mediterranean climate.
With only a quarter of vineyards under appellation, producers have more flexibility in the Languedoc than in other French wine regions to explore what is possible, while AC wines keep a grip on tradition – from Picpoul de Pinet on the Mediterranean coast, to the more historic appellations of Corbières and Minervois, the Languedoc has something to offer everyone.
As part of the webinar, Richard will be tasting Chateau Sainte-Eulalie’s Grand Vin 2017, from the Minervois-La Livinière cru appellation. Feel free to purchase the same and taste alongside! Otherwise, feel free to join with a glass of wine of your choice! Let us know what you're tasting on Instagram:
