Sud Tendances Diffusion

Tourbes , Languedoc



End of the harvest in most parts of the  Languedoc since the last days of September . It appears that some areas have severely suffered the drought and we hear about  productions that are 30 or 40 % lower ( sometimes even more ) than last year . But this is not the case everywhere where irrigation exists or in some terroirs ( In Limoux or St Chinian for instance ) . 

A few tastings in some cellars show that we can be opitimistic about the quality of the vintage .Nevertheless it is a bit too early to have a precise opinion ..We have to be patient .


In  the meantime , may we suggest very interesting wines for the End of year sales :

To make it easier ,we can consider that we offer 2 types of wines : 


1- Easy drinking wines 

They can be the daily treat ! These are quite fruity and  aromatic  . They respect the consumers as they offer a lot of pleasure at a very affordable price  !  


2- Artisan Wines 

These are more complex , with more structure  - They can please the connoisseur , the true wine lovers , the gourmets or epicureans .But they would also like to be considered by greater numbers as they really bring a lot of delight too !
