2006 Chateau La Roque Coteaux du Languedoc Pic Saint Loup Rouge "Cuvee Les Vielles Vignes de Mourvedre"
You would think that this would be a relatively young region based on there short period as an AOC, but that is absolutely not the case. Wine has been made in this are since Roman times, and the De La Roque brothers planted new vines in the Chateau La Roque estate vineyards in the 13th century! The history in the Languedoc region is long and storied, but it is in recent times that the attention to quality vs. quantity has really improved turning the Languedoc into a great up an coming wine region. It is these types of regions where great wine values can be found, and this offering from Chateua La Roque is no exception.
