Languedoc-Roussillon covers a large region of southern France, from the Rhone to the Pyrenees. For many years its wines had a poor reputation and the over-production filled the European wine lake. Now, with attention to yields and new wine-making techniques, Languedoc-Roussillon is producing first rate wines from the traditional grapes of the region as well as from France's classic grapes - Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc. Liz Berry looks at these developments - the creation of new applications, the advance of new technology, and new investments as the New World wine wizards move into Europe. Languedoc-Roussillon is perhaps the most exciting and forward-looking wine region in Europe today, and its wines offer remarkable value for money.
