AOC Languedoc, often referred to as the worlds biggest vineyard, stretches across from the Pyrenees to Provence across a vast section of the south of France. Whilst home to both simple table wine and world class quality wines, it is above all famous for it’s variety of grapes, of terroirs, of climates and consequently it’s blended wines. Across the 150miles of vines climates and soils range greatly; from a truly cool, maritime climate to warmer and drier continental climates affected by mountains and strong winds.

The vines are situated around Magalas, in the heart of the Côtes de Thongue, with an average altitude of 110 meters on different exposures and soils. The Taix family produce 4 white wines and 7 red wines from 11 different varieties. Merlot, Cabernet and Chardonnay are planted on sandy marls, while the Syrah, Grenache and Carignan are planted on sandstone. A new state-of-the-art cellar, built on the terraces overlooking Malaga, has been design to create optimum conditions for winemaking, including temperature controls, an adapted fermentation room and a barrel cellar, with a focus on gravity and circulation of air throughout. All the wines are vinified in cement under controlled temperatures, with the reds being aged in barrel for 12-18 months depending on the vintage, and the whites aged in vats with regular stirring on the lees.

Tasting note: 6 months of lees aging Chardonnay gives it the creamy texture to match the acidity. Very hands-off wine-making leads to a waxy lemon and white fruit profile on the nose, with plenty of minerals too. The splash of Viogner adds to the aromatic profile.
Winemaking Detail: Manual harvest followed by hand selection. The grapes are destemmed and pressed under inert gas. Cold fermentation after a light settling before being aged on the lees in cement tanks for 6 months. Vinified, aged and bottled without the addition of sulphites. Bottled unfiltered and unfined.
