Red wines from the South of France (Côtes du Rhône, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Languedoc, Pays d'Oc) take advantage of the ideal wine-growing climate of the Golf du Lion. Cool winter seasons allow the vines to rest while the dry, hot and windy summers guarantee a full ripeness of the grapes. That is why Syrah, which thrives in this type of climate, is the dominating grape in most of the red blends. Like no other, the wines from the South of France match with nearly everything: For the most simple dish to the most sophisticated meal.
