Wine Review Report:

Last reviewed: 25 March, 2019

The appellation is located in the very west of the Languedoc wine region in the department of Aude (sometimes it is considered to be part of the southwest region of France). The vineyards cover 1,800 hectares of vines at an altitude of around 160 metres above sea level on a combination of light and stony clay and limestone soils. They extend over 41 communes on the southern slopes of the upper Aude valley, with Limoux, the main town nearest to Carcassonne. Protected by the Pyrenees, the climate is oceanic-Mediterranean. Limoux became famous for its sparkling wines, which were already produced in the 16th...

The northern part of the Languedoc-Roussillon area in the deep south of France on the Mediterranean coast. It includes, from north to southwest, the three départements of Gard, Hérault and Aude. The much smaller Roussillon in the département of Pyrénées-Orientales connects to the west, and the wine-growing regions of Provence and Rhône to the east. The name derives from "langue d'oc", which means "language of the Oc" (oc = yes). This Occitan language was spoken south of the Loire in the Middle Ages; to the north, "langue d'oil" was spoken...

The later French had been consuming wine for a long time before they began to cultivate it themselves on a large scale. The...

This red grape variety comes from France. The name is probably derived from the French word for blackbird (merle), because these birds like to nibble the berries, which are very sweet when fully ripe. However, the name may also be an allusion to the black-blue colouring of the berries similar to the bird. There are over 60 synonyms, which testify to its worldwide distribution. The most important are Alicante Noir, Begney, Bigney, Bigney Rouge, Bini, Black Alicante, Blue Merlot, Bordò, Cabernet del Cleto, Crabutet, Crabutet Noir, Crabutet Noir Merlau, Hebigney, Higney, Médoc Noir, Merlau, Merlot Black, Merlot Blue, Merlot Crni, Merlot...
