- Other Info:
- The Oc, or Pays dOc as youll see it on most labels, refers to the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France, known by the French as Le Midi. Geographically the Oc covers an incredibly broad swathe of vineyards from the Rhône delta in the middle of southern France, arcing all the way round to the Spanish border on her Mediterranean seaboard. Planted here are both traditional grape varieties such as Grenache Gris (which makes very fine rosé) and Grenache Noir (try Pasquiers for a full-bodied flavoursome find); as well as the cépages améliorateurs (varieties introduced in the last twenty to thirty years) such as Syrah and Merlot for reds, Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc for whites.
A French classic - mulberries, redcurrants and blackcurrants mingle on the nose with hints of crème de cassis and even parma violets! A complex palate yet truly well balanced.
