The Region
Languedoc, located in central southern France, is a predominately red wine producing appellation, with grape growing experience dating back to around 125 BC. The Languedoc experiences a Mediterranean climate (warm, dry, sunny summers), with near drought conditions, and steady winds which bring cool air from the mountains. These conditions, along with the rich clay soils found in the Herault and Aude wine growing regions within Languedoc, provide excellent growing conditions for red varietals.

The Wine
Body: 4, Acidity: 0.57 g/100 mL, Wine type: Smooth Red

This blend consists of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Merlot is the soft, charming varietal that takes the leading role in this wine, while Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot provide the structure, backbone, body and depth of colour. This classic Bordeaux-style, medium to full-bodied wine has soft tannins and aromas and flavours of red and black berries, plum, tobacco, dried herbs, leather, spice and oak. The wine should drink well within 3 to 4 months of bottling and cellar for up to 2 years.

The Food
This classic blend would complement medium-rare to rare grilled red meats; beef tenderloin; lamb chops; roast beef; aged Canadian cheddar; prime rib roast; grilled mushrooms; steak fajitas.
