Languedoc-Roussillon

In the hills just to the south of the ancient walled city of Carcassonne, Limoux is famous for its sparkling wine, Blanquette de Limoux. More recently it has also established a reputation as one of the top white wine producing regions of France utilising mainly Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc. We buy from Château Rives-Blanques, a wonderfully situated property run by charming Dutch/English couple Jan and Caryl Panman. White varieties here can work well either individually, such as the Petite Vigne Viognier or in blends such as the Rhônestyle offering from Château de Lancyre. Picpoul is now extremely fashionable; we love the brilliant Domaine des Lauriers.
