AOC Languedoc

The diversity of France's wine regions represented by nine key appellations

With this AOC Languedoc, Maison Castel demonstrates its expertise and French savoir-faire in a key appellation. Expressive, fruity and spicy, this wine is the perfect combination of typicity and modernity.

Precise quality management

The Languedoc appellation is part of Languedoc-Roussillon, France's largest wine region. The Mediterranean climate has little rainfall but plenty of wind, making this an ideal region for wine growing. For this wine, the Maison Castel team carefully choose grapes from the Minervois and blend two varieties, namely Syrah and Grenache.

Maison Castel know-how

The Maison Castel team works closely with their long-term partners to maximise the aromatic expression of this wine and regular monitoring is carried out at their partners wineries. There is a short maceration period prior to fermentation, to extract the aromatic compounds from the skins. Vinification is done at controlled temperatures to encourage the development of red fruit and spice notes. Tank ageing for 6 - 8 month softens the tannins and gives the wine its deep, smooth character.
