Wine Critic Reviews:

...It boasts an expansive, intense, complex bouquet of garrigue, strawberries and black cherries intermixed with a hint of spring flowers, a velvety texture and a voluptuous mouthfeel... This beautiful, soft, round, seductive red should drink well for 4-5 years. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.

Region Languedoc: Located in southern France, Languedoc is one of the largest wine regions in this country and it covers the land between the region of Provence and the Spanish border. It's no wonder over a third of French wines are made right here. Languedoc has a long history that dates back to ancient Greeks, which makes it one of the oldest wine regions in France, too. Today, Languedoc wines are considered to be some of the highest-quality wines in the world that successfully keep the tradition alive while fulfilling the demands of the international market. Languedoc's rich offer has any wine you could ever think of. From more rustic, traditionally made wines to those with more contemporary characteristics, any wine enthusiast could find a perfect bottle for themselves. Some of the most delightful whites are made of Chardonnay, but other varieties such as Mauzac or Chenin blanc are also cultivated in this region. Among commonly used red varieties you could find Syrah, Carignan, Grenache, and plenty of others. Some of them feature an enjoyable nutty taste, while others are marvelously sweet. Of course, if you happen to find yourself in Languedoc, you shouldn't leave until you have a glass of Cremant de Limoux - a sophisticated sparkling wine typical for this exceptional region.
Type of Wine France (Other): No words exist that could accurately portray France's influence on the world of wine. This isn't a problem for us mortals, as a single sip of an elegant, classic French wine speaks directly to one's soul in a hitherto unfamiliar language. Whether you're enjoying a classy Cabernet Sauvignon or a charming Chardonnay, your mind drifts just a bit closer to heaven.
Varietal Proprietary Blend: There's a level of mystery and intrigue when it comes to drinking a wine for which you're not fully informed about, and if that sounds like a thrilling idea to you, then you're probably already interested in proprietary blends. While the concept doesn't have a legal definition, it is used to describe blends whose components aren't disclosed by the producer. In many cases, the wine tends to be a Bordeaux-inspired blend, but this isn't always the case.
