Dune Gris de Gris-La Cour Des Dames
The Pays d’Oc (Languedoc-Roussillon), the biggest vineyard region in the world, boasts a wide range of geographic features, from the sunny beaches on the Mediterranean sea to the plains of Béziers, to the banks of the Rhône to the Pyrenees mountains. As in Burgundy, the region offers an infinite of terroirs and microclimates, allowing very different wines to be produced.
The Languedoc is located in a Mediterranean climate zone, characterized by mild winters and hot, dry summers and low rainfall. The prevailing wind, the Tramontana, promotes drying vines and prevents diseases. This remarkable climate is ideal for growing vines. But this facility was not always an asset for the region, whose wines were long considered to be of poor quality wines.
The secret behind the high quality of the “La Cour des Dames” wines lies in this rich variety of complementary terroirs .
