Region

The Languedoc is a vast region stretching across much of the south and Mediterranean and is France`s single largest vineyard entity for its Vins de Pays wines. Within the Languedoc lie several distinctly identified Vins de Pays (including the l`Aude, Gard and Hérault) and many generic appellations that maintain traditional local blends and wine styles such as Minervois, Corbières, Pic Saint Loup and Fitou.

Producer

LGI were created in 1999 by forward thinking partners aware of the challenge and opportunity that lay ahead for regional French wines in the competitive international market. Wines are made and blended from three main sources; Saint Chinian in the Herault, Jean d`Alibert in Minervois and from Gascogny. Quality of Languedoc and Gascogne varietals exceeds expectation and presentation is second to none.
Tasting Notes
Made from 50 year old Carignan vines, grown on red chalky soils in the village of Cruzy just north from Béziers city in Languedoc. A ripe and concentrated wine, deep ruby in colour with an alluring nose of sweet ripe strawberry and dark cherry, it is supple with ripe fruit flavours and very light tannins.
Food
This well flavoured red will match grilled meats, steak, casseroles and game and ripe cheeses.
