The wines from the Languedoc-Roussillon region are produced in the south of France, from the Mediterranean coast to Provence. Cabernet, Merlot, Murvedre, Grenache and Syrah are among the most important red grape varieties in the region.
Most wine producers in the region produce blends, as opposed to single grapes. There are some remarkable values to be found in the wines of this region. Many red blends of this region are sold at retail prices well below 20 dollars!
G?rard Bertrand was born and raised in the South of France. Making wine with his father, Georges, since the age of 10, G?rard Bertrand offers a complete range and variety of wines from this region – red, white, pink, vintage, appellations, vineyards, quiet, sparkling and dessert.
Each wine evokes the image and emotions of southern France; “Art de Vivre” – “art of life”. Committed to producing quality wines of great value, Gerard keeps his hand on the pulse of all the facets that carry his name… and is fortunate to have received major awards from the press around the world, confirming his dedication.
Languedoc-Roussillon is the largest wine region in the world, being responsible for over 1/3 of the wine production in France.
Although in the past it has produced cheap table wines, many vineyards and cooperatives are replacing lower quality wines with higher quality varieties and production methods. The quality of the grapes has been continuously improving since the 1970s, when the region was best known for pumping cheap wines from jars.
Discover Blended Red Wine Wines
In the United States, a red mix is any American wine that isn't produced from a single grape type. It's an odd classification since many, if not all, red wines are and have always been mixes. A grand cru Bordeaux produced entirely of Cabernet, as well as Chiantis made entirely of Sangiovese, are the exception rather than the norm. In addition, California law only requires a wine's label to contain 75% of the grape type.
Winemakers combine grapes because it enables them to create a wine in a sense. A splash of Merlot may help soften Cabernet's tannins, while a dash of Syrah can give watery, inexpensive Pinot some punch. Blending is common in several regions: Rioja, for example, has traditionally blended Tempranillo, Graciano, and Garnacha. Many modern, inexpensive red blends, on the other hand, are simply created for mass appeallots of superripe, black fruit and no acidityusing whatever varietals would suffice.
