This region is similar to neighbouring Languedoc in terms of climate, grape type and wines.

Just next door to Spain, Roussillon is full of stony terraces that are ideal for growing natural sweet wines (VDN), which is a particular feature of the vineyards.

There are also black shale, granite and clay-limestone soils.

The climate is a very sunny one, with low, poorly distributed rainfall.

There are 7,300 hectares of vineyards, producing 900,000 hl of wine.

Natural sweet wines (Banyuls, Maury, Rivesaltes) have for a long time been representative of the region’s wines. Today, though, with the modernisation of facilities, the diversification of grape types and new winemaking techniques, there is more production of quality dry wines.

The main grape types are identical to those in Languedoc: for reds, black carignan, syrah, mourvèdre and black grenache. For whites, marsanne, roussanne, vermentino, muscat à petits grains, malvoisie, macabeu, white grenache and grey grenache.

Recent vintages

  • 2011: a fine year, with balanced, fragranced reds and dry whites with freshness and acidity.
  • 2012: because of the low yields, the reds are complex, deep and voluptuous. The dry whites are fresh and taut. As for the VDN, these are crisp, intense and very balanced.
  • 2013: magnificent, very fruity white wines. Reds full of flavour and svelte thanks to the lower alcohol content.
  • 2014: a great vintage, fresh and late, charcterised by finesse and freshness. The whites are balanced and very aromatic, while the reds are mature and fine with a great intensity of fruit.
