The Wines of the Languedoc-Roussillon by Wendy Gedney
WendyGedneybook
 
A good many years have passed - and so much exciting progress has been made - since any new books devoted to the wines of Languedoc and Roussillon have been published. And at last, the wait is over, with the release of "The Wines of the Languedoc-Roussillon" by Wendy Gedney.

The aim of this book is not to lead you to individual wines or wine growers. Rather, it offers an all-encompassing guide for the wine lover, with chapters covering the history of the region, the many and varied landscapes and terroirs, the grapes, the wine laws, the wine styles and viticulture.

We are taken on a vinous journey from the Gard, in the far east of Languedoc, all the way to Banyuls and Collioure at the southern end of Roussillon, detailing the grapes, wines and terroir of every appellation and sub-appellation in-between. Along the way, we learn about towns and villages of note, the scenery, some of the region's notable food and drink specialities and lots more.




The 170-plus pages of the book are beautifully illustrated and greatly enhanced by myriad specially commissioned colour maps, pencil drawings and watercolours by illustrator Jenny Baker. Most importantly of all, it is a book which will appeal not only to seasoned Languedoc-Roussillon aficionados and wine enthusiasts, but also those who are seeking to learn more about the region. Furthermore, since it's main purpose is to offer an all-round guide to the region and it's wines and vineyards - rather than keep up with the relentless pace of change and evolution amongst the wine-making fraternity - it is sure to remain relevant and topical for many years to come.

And for that, it deserves a place on the bookshelf or coffee table of any self-respecting lover of Languedoc-Roussillon.
