2022 Vin de France Rouge “Saint Jacques”

Maxime Magnon
Discount Eligible $39.00
AT CART MAX

Maxime Magnon recently found a plot of old vines between his home appellation of Corbières and the Mediterranean coast and couldn’t resist the opportunity to make a new cuvée. Blending equal parts Grenache, Carignan, and Mourvèdre—which doesn’t feature in his classic Corbières bottlings—as well as a splash of Cinsault, this exuberant rouge boasts all of Maxime’s trademark elegance and silkiness. It is an exciting new entry to Maxime’s extraordinarily delicious southern reds.

About The Region

Languedoc-Roussillon

map of 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.
