Languedoc-Roussillon

Languedoc-Roussillon

Лангедок е бил важен център за винопроизводство в продължение на няколко века, като пристанището Сете и връзката с Атлантическия океан през 17 -ти век Canal du Midi осигуряват ключови търговски пътища. Връщайки се назад, има доказателства за римско винопроизводство в района. Руините на винарска изба от първи век се намират близо до Клермон на запад от Монпелие. Средиземноморският климат и изобилната земя с почви, вариращи от скалист пясък до гъста глина, отдавна се смятат за много подходящи за производството на вино. Наследството на Лангедок-Русийон обаче често се пренебрегва в съвременната епоха, тъй като регионът придоби репутация за производство на количество над качество. Днес лицето на виното Лангедок-Русийон е драстично променено. Засадени са по -жизнеспособни сортове грозде, а имена като St Chinian, Faggères, Corbières, Pic St Loup и Terrasses du Larzac са все по -известни сред сомелиерите и любителите на виното - а вината често се предлагат като страхотно съотношение цена-качество във винените листи на най-добрите ресторанти.

Viognier

Viognier is a white grape variety used to produce rich wines with pronounced aromas of stone fruit, but can also be very herbal, with aromas of chamomile, lavender, thyme and even a hint of pine. At the end of the 1960s, the Viognier plantations numbered only 14 hectares - mainly located around Condrieu and Château-Grillet. The variety is difficult to grow, has a naturally low acidity. At the same time, it requires a lot of sunshine to ripen properly, but if there is too much heat, it accumulates sugars quickly and due to the high alcohol content, the final wine loses the apricot tones in its aromatic profile. Despite these difficulties in cultivation, after the late 70s of last century, various winemakers around the world began to experiment with it - mailny in Australia and the United States. Today, Viognier is enjoying a remarkable renaissance, with even increasing areas in France, and is also grown in Italy, Spain, Switzerland, the United States, Chile, Argentina, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and even Japan. The variety performs quite well when fermented in oak barrels, in which case the herbal aromas are softened and shades of honey and vanilla are added to them. Interestingly, Vionnier is allowed and used in the Côte-Rôtie appellation for co-fermentation with Syrah. The allowed addition is up to 20% and actually it contributes significantly to improving the profile of the final wine.
