Chateau la Liquiereby Bernard Vidal
APPELLATION: AOC Coteaux du Languedoc
Château la Liquière represents 60 hectares under vine, all situated within the zone producing AOC Faugères. Every vintage the vineyard produces 10 different wines. Our offerings are the expression of our terroir, produced by our expertise and experience. Our red grape varieties are composed of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, Mourvedre and Cinsault, while our white grape varieties are represented by Grenache blanc, Roussane, Terret and Clairette.
Two wineries are located on the estate : a traditional one, equipped with underground vats in order to work with gravity, and a modern, more functional entity.
The wines are aged in different types of containers (225-litre barrels, demi-muids, vats…) in view of determining the best type of maturing and blending.
Much of the fertile plains of Languedoc-Roussillon have been dedicated to agriculture and viniculture. One of the major wine growing regions in France, the historic area of Languedoc encompassed a far larger portion of Southern France including much of Provence and current Occitanie; Roussillon, on the other hand, is significantly smaller and just about the area of the East Pyrenees.
About one-third of all vines used in French viniculture are in this area. The climate of this somewhat dry region – with the some parts of the area receiving the least amount of rain in the entire country – as well a strong winds coming from off coast, aid the region in sustaining high levels of organic production and contribute to its standing as the leader in French organic winemaking.
