This blend from the Languedoc-Rousillon has great balance from the contrasting riper richness of the chardonnay and the aromatic minerality of the Roussanne. With medium weight but softness on the palate, very food-friendly and crowd-pleasing.

Chateau de Larzac was briefly the home of Lord Clive of India, prior to his return to England. It was here that his Indian chef invented the much prized local delicacy ‘Les Petits Pates’, breads filled with sweet spicy lamb, a more refined version of Keema Naan. The vineyards are owned by Claudie et Pierre Bonafe and lie just outside Pezenas, a town half way between Beziers and Montpellier, in the Herault Valley, in the heart of the Languedoc.

The wine region of Languedoc is quite vast, encompassing much of the Mediterranean coastline of France, as well as reaching quite far inward. To the east, it abuts the southern Rhone and Provence regions, and the wines reflect that in their structured blends. To the west, the region divides further, with Bordeaux-influenced wines to the north, and Catalunian-influences to the south. This diversity (and relative cheapness of land) lends itself to a wine culture that is very playful. Lots of producers from other regions buy property here to experiment. In addition, there is an abundance of good, inexpensive wine that makes it to US shores from Languedoc, most with very "cheeky" names.
