Book Review: Les Grands Crus du Languedoc et Roussillon

Les Grands Crus du Languedoc et Roussillon
By Michel Smith
Editions Renault

A dense tome with profiles of many growers in the Languedoc-Roussillon region. Michel Smith has selected his choice of best growers, the future Grands Crus. The book is 100% focused on the producers, not even a brief introduction to the region or the appellations is included. Every property is presented on one or two pages, in quite a bit of detail. Lots of text in rather small type, interspersed with some (but not much) photos. You can always have opinions on a selection of growers. For instance, why are none of the excellent producers in La Clape included? But overall we think this is a good and representative selection from the region. A book for the French reading Languedoc enthusiast looking for a reference work on growers.
