Languedoc is a wine-growing region located in the southern part of France, specifically in the Languedoc-Roussillon region. It is the largest wine-producing region in France and one of the largest in the world.
The region has a Mediterranean climate with long, hot summers and mild winters, which leads to wines with good ripeness and high alcohol level. The wines from this region are typically rich and full-bodied, with flavours of dark fruit, spices and a hint of garrigue for reds, and floral, tropical fruits and a hint of mineral for whites.
Languedoc wines can also carry an Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC) or Indication Géographique Protégée (IGP) depending on the specific area and regulations.
