It’s official: AOC Languedoc is born

>> Thursday, May 31, 2007

In a text published on April 30 AOC Languedoc has been officially announced. Technically, it is not a new appellation but a modification of the existing AOC Coteaux du Languedoc. To create a new AC takes many years and the growers were more impatient than that. So instead they opted to change the existing AC Coteaux du Languedoc so that it a) changes name, and b) includes both the Languedoc and the Roussillon. The intention is that it will make it easier for consumers. Laudable of course. The AOC Languedoc may be used from the 2006 harvest. The old one can still be used during a transition period of five years.
