2016 Languedoc Blanc “Garrigue”

Château de Lascaux

2016 Languedoc Blanc “Garrigue” Château de Lascaux - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
Not far from the Languedoc’s spectacular vertical limestone outcropping known as Pic Saint Loup, thirteenth-generation vigneron Jean-Benoît Cavalier runs the historic Château de Lascaux. While Pic Saint Loup is renowned for its red wines and also has an appellation dedicated to rosé, the area is equally conducive to the production of high-quality whites. Situated at the foot of mountains that bring cool winds and close enough to the Mediterranean to benefit from its moderating influence, the vines enjoy perfect conditions to achieve balanced ripeness year after year. This blend of Rolle (Vermentino), Roussanne, Marsanne, and Viognier combines a sun-kissed roundness on the palate with the crisp liveliness conferred by the unique microclimate and rocky limestone soils. With notes of lemon and garrigue herbs plus a stimulating mineral element, the Lascaux blanc is the ideal match for Mediterranean fish preparations. Alternatively, chill a bottle for your apéritif and savor its breezy freshness.

About Languedoc-Roussillon

Ask wine drinkers around the world, and the word “Languedoc” is sure to elicit mixed reactions. On the one hand, the region is still strongly tied to its past as a producer of cheap, insipid bulk wine in the eyes of many consumers. On the other hand, it is the source of countless great values providing affordable everyday pleasure, with an increasing number of higher-end wines capable of rivaling the best from other parts of France.

While there’s no denying the Languedoc’s checkered history, the last two decades have seen a noticeable shift to fine wine, with an emphasis on terroir. Ambitious growers have sought out vineyard sites with poor, well draining soils in hilly zones, curbed back on irrigation and the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, and looked to balance traditional production methods with technological advancements to craft wines with elegance, balance, and a clear sense of place. Today, the overall quality and variety of wines being made in the Languedoc is as high as ever.

Shaped like a crescent hugging the Mediterranean coast, the region boasts an enormous variety of soil types and microclimates depending on elevation, exposition, and relative distance from the coastline and the cooler foothills farther inland. While the warm Mediterranean climate is conducive to the production of reds, there are world-class whites and rosés to be found as well, along with stunning dessert wines revered by connoisseurs for centuries.

Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
