Les Vignobles Foncalieu

Les Vignobles Foncalieu are a co-operative made up of over 1000 growers with vineyards located across a broad sweep of the South of France, taking in the Languedoc, Cotes du Rousillon and parts of the Southern Rhone. With 7000 hectares under vine this co-operative works to produce wines of exceptional quality in a wide range of styles, and has invested significantly in a modernised winery and the technical know-how of the winemaking team.

French Country

Appellation d'Origine Controlee (AOC) wines take up a significant amount of the limelight in France, but there are many thousands hectares of vineyards that fall outside of this classification. Of these, wines granted the status of Indication Geographique Protegee (IGP) are the most important and include the regions of Ardeche, Languedoc-Roussillon and Cotes de Provence, France's best-known region for rose wines. Producers must meet strict conditions to hit the required quality standards, particularly around yields and minimum alcohol content. There are many excellent wines offering great value for money made under the IGP label and relaxed labelling laws allow winemakers to indicate the wine's grape variety on the bottle. Alongside the classic Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, varieties like Viognier, Grenache and Syrah are prominent. Despite a perception of inferior quality to AOC wines, this is not the case, as winemakers looking to work innovatively outside of their own strict AOC rules will label their wines as IGP.

Languedoc-Roussillon

The vast wine region of Languedoc-Roussillon in south-east France is home to a diverse and constantly improving range of wines, with vineyards stretching north from the Spanish border past the cities of Marseille and Montpellier. Once home to cheaply produced, rustic table wines, the last 30 years have seen a drastic turnaround, as competition from keenly priced New World wines forced producers to move away from their traditional approach and focus on innovation and quality. The introduction of the Vin de Pays classification in 1979 allowed producers to label by variety, and consumers were able to see whether their wine was made from Chardonnay, Merlot, Grenache or Cabernet. Investment from the established wine cognoscenti of other regions has also helped and improved the viticultural development of Languedoc-Roussillon, and today excellent value can be derived from the region's wines, no matter which variety you like to drink.

Syrah

Syrah, most famously found growing in the northern Rhone Valley, is a dark-skinned grape capable of producing diverse wines of various flavours and styles. Typically known for its dark-berry fruit flavour and distinct black pepper aroma, Syrah wines age well, and develop complex flavours of leather, licorice and woody herbs. Outside of the Rhone, good examples of Syrah can be found in New Zealand, the United States and South America. Australia has a style of its own, famously known the world over as Shiraz.
