Languedoc, De l`Herault
LGI were created in 1999 by forward thinking partners aware of the challenge and opportunity that lay ahead for regional French wines in the competitive international market. Wines are made and blended from three main sources; Saint Chinian in the Herault, Jean d`Alibert in Minervois and from Gascogny. Quality of Languedoc and Gascogne varietals exceeds expectation and presentation is second to none.
The depertment of Hérault lies to the north east of the Aude and west of the Gard, centred on the town of Montpellier. Much of the Coteaux du Languedoc falls within this rugged warm region. The Hérault is a successful host to the classic Bordeaux varietals as well as Chardonnay and the Rhône`s Syrah, Grenache and Viognier.
On the nose, white flowers, honeysuckle and stone fruits such as apricots create an evocative bouquet, which is followed through on the medium bodied palate with ripe peach and apple flavours which lead to a fresh, zesty finish.
Perfect as a match for seafood salads, crab and poached salmon, green salads and chicken dishes.
