Jeanjean en Languedoc has launched a range of new wines under the brand name Maison du Sud. The first five are now available in the UK.
- Cabernet Sauvignon
- Grenache-Cinsault rosé (60/40)
Maison du Sud is a new range of Languedoc wines being launched for the off-trade by Jeanjean en Languedoc, with the modern wine consumer clearly in view.
The collection draws from the richness and diversity of the Pays d’Oc terroirs and micro-climates and expresses the variety of IGPs.
Five wines are initially being introduced into the UK, created around the simple concept of four international varietals, which have found a place to flourish and establish their own characters in some of the Languedoc best-known landscapes and terroirs: Chardonnay from vineyards near Beziers; Merlot from the foothills of the Moure; Sauvignon from the shores of the Etang de Thau and Cabernet Sauvignon from the distinctive soils around the Lac du Salagou. A fifth wine to be launched is a Grenache-Cinsault rosé, that owes it concentration of aromas, freshness and acidity to the low yields of the Pic Saint Loup region.
In words of the Jeanjean’s head winemaker, Englishman, Iain Munson, “These are simple but well-made wines, with a resolutely modern style and the very best expression of fruit and everything we have to offer here in the Languedoc”.
The simplicity of the concept of Maison du Sud, is epitomised in the fresh, simple artwork which Jeanjean has commissioned from Languedoc artist Hervé (aka Malard). Hervé grew up in the region and each label carries a beautifully depicted view of the landscape, painted in watercolour with the passion and love of the place that is obviously felt by winemakers and artists alike.
The range is available now and the wines will retail for between £5.99-£6.99.
