Lots of things going on in the Languedoc of late. A lot of good videos in queue, but you’re going to have to wait a bit more. In the meantime, I found this post from Lar Veale’s site Sour Grapes. On a recent visit to the region sponsored by Chateau Pennautier he made a video that describes the qualities of the terroir in the Cabardes.
Watching this, you can understand how the Cabardès earned a spot in the Grands Vins du Languedoc. Although I don’t know if the climate here is quite as lush as the Pennautier lawn makes us out to be, provoking Lar to compare our soil to the green glens of Ireland. But either way, the sentiment is good and you can tell that the terroir has really inspired him on his visit.
