20 km from Montpellier in the municipality of Lunel-Viel lies the vineyard of Domaine Mas de Gachon lies on pebble hills with a southeastern exposition. The vineyard is completely organic and they mainly produce varietal wines, but also Languedoc AOP wines.
The climate and strong winds, which help prevent pests and disease by giving natural protection to the vineyards, contribute to the region’s ability to sustain a high level of organic production—30 percent of all organic French wine comes from the Languedoc.
Overall, the region receives little rainfall, and in some areas the amount of rain is the lowest in France. But the Languedoc has reserves of water in most of its calcareous soils. Soil types vary, with clay and limestone being the most dominant, though there are areas where schist, shale, granite, pebbles, and sandstone are common.
About the wine:
In the glass a very bright salmon color.
On the medium nose aromas of peach, grapefruit and citrus with hints of white blossom and mediterranean herbs.
On the palate dry, medium bodied with nice freshness and minerality. Light bitterness in the aftertaste.
