Languedoc-Roussillon: (Wines and Winemakers series)

Paul Strang
 5 stars

The renaissance of the Languedoc-Roussillon, France's oldest wine region, has been the most exciting development in the wine world in the last twenty years.

This is the first book to explore the terroir, traditions, wine-making practices, laws, and wines of the Languedoc-Roussillon.

Paul Strang identifies each of the region's key wine-producing areas, explores their winemaking and profiles their finest producers and their wines.

For each area, maps and photographs show the landscape. Sidebars offer information about climate, soil, and grape varieties. Equally detailed accounts of each large producer's property - including number of hectares in production, grapes planted, and wines produced - will be useful for anyone who enjoys the wines of this region.

This is the only illustrated guide devoted entirely to this region Languedoc-Roussillon: The Wines and Winemakers will be the leading authority.



Virgile's Vineyard: A Year in the Languedoc Wine Country

by Patrick Moon
 5 stars

Inheriting a neglected house in the south of France, Patrick Moon sets out to discover how the Languedoc has managed to transform itself into one of the world’s most exciting wine regions.

Virgile, a young winemaker passionately devoted to perfection, offers to initiate Patrick into the mysteries of each season’s work. At the other extreme is Manu, Patrick’s dipsomaniac neighbor, a diehard traditionalist producing a private wine–lake of unspeakable rouge.

With Manu as his guide, Patrick embarks on a series of lively encounters with growers. In between these bucolic expeditions, the author struggles to deal with his inheritance—an unfamiliar and unpredictable world.
