Château de Lascaux, in the picturesque stone village of Vacquières, falls on a narrow belt of land in the Languedoc where both the mountains to the north and the sea to the south exert animportant influence on climate. By moderating the intense dry  heat of the Midi, they allow for wines of a rare freshness and drinkability.
Beyond terroir, one of the secrets to freshness, enjoyment, and drinkability in a Mediterranean white wine is Vermentino. Lascaux and Kermit have long been singing that same tune. The quintessential Mediterranean white grape, Vermentino loves any scraggly, sun-drenched hill close to the sea. It breathes in the salt and the wild herbs from its surroundings and brings vivacity and elegance to the mix when blended with other varietals. Kermit has been pleading its cause to growers in Provence for years with excellent results, while Lascaux has long been proving its merits near Pic Saint Loup. Round and textured yet breezily crisp, this could be the Languedoc's perfect summer white. –Anthony Lynch
