South of France

A hugely undervalued and varied region which, while it has its crowd favourites such as Provence Rosé and Picpoul de Pinet, also has its low-profile gems in areas such as Collioure, Corbières and Limoux. It benefits from some of the most dramatic scenery in France from the hinterland of Nice, through to the rocky peak of Pic Saint Loup, and on to the dramatic foothills of the Pyrenees, which have provided cover for groups as disparate as medieval Cathars and the French Resistance in the Second World War. 

Crisp dry white wines are abundant in  Gascony and the South-West, some using grapes once destined for Armagnac. The whites of  Languedoc-Roussillon, in contrast, tend to be bigger and gentler with Mediterranean and Rhône white grapes vying with Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay for space. Within the Languedoc,  Picpoul de Pinet is de rigueur for delivering pure summer pleasure whilst the whites from the cooler climate of  Limoux are more serious, Burgundian even, while those from Collioure on the Roussillon coast and further inland have great minerality. The pale rosé wines of Provence have caught the imagination in the last few years, but there are rivals – often better value – from the Languedoc and these lookalikes can be excellent. Gascony rosés, made from Bordeaux and south-western grapes, tend to be more blackcurranty in flavour. 

Overall, red wines are the most important style in the South which has a diversity of climates and terroirs that allows it to produce a vast number of very different wines.  Languedoc-Roussillon  is arguably the area of the most wine innovation in France making both varietal wines alongside a roster of AOCs such as Minervois, Corbières and (Coteaux du) Languedoc. Provence’s most famous red is from beside the sea at Bandol whereas Gascony and the South-West fields Bergerac, Pécharmant and Madiran as its star players.
