Languedoc producers can also elaborate the most brilliant rosé wines, and this is the perfect example of a light-bodied rosé, just what we like for the summer. It exhibits some flavours of red fruit and apple, with a perfect acidity to keep it as fresh as possible. Ideal for an afternoon in the sun or even better, on a barbecue!

The Garrigue Rouge from Château de Lascaux is a typical fruity Languedoc at a great price for such quality. This organic wine delivers flavours of ripe red fruit, herbs and liquorice, it is a medium-bodied red with notes of black pepper on the finish. A lovely red to drink with a pork tenderloin or a grilled piece of red meat.

Coming from specific parcels, the high end white of the Château is wonderful. It shows clean aromas of apricot, peach and lime ending with a long, luscious, toasted finish. Wooden notes coming from French oak barrels are perfectly integrated and give a lot of balance and complexity, reminding some wines from Burgundy. This bottle is definitely in our top...
