The major producer

International grape varieties can produce lovely wines as single varietals, particularly from the vin de pays sites. However, I believe that the focus in the Languedoc should be on traditional blends from distinctive vineyard terroirs. We were attracted to the Languedoc by its geological richness and diversity, and we acquired Mas Belles Eaux precisely because of its outstanding terroir, Vill afranchian gravel based on red clay. Both the AOC wines that we make at Belles Eaux: the St Helene and Les Coteaux, are blends of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre and Carignan, resulting in wines of character, and this for me is the attraction of the Languedoc.
