Loire, Provence, Languedoc-Roussillon and Corsica (C287)

Blue skies and sunshine have attracted artists and tourists alike to Southern France for centuries, and are conducive to grape growing. Languedoc-Roussillon and Provence are generally a pretty sure bet for grape growing. Yet as I was writing this Cellar Offering, frosts hit the whole of France, including the south. Some of Opimian’s growers featured here have been affected in
80-90 percent of their vineyards and the French government has declared an agricultural disaster. It is heartbreaking to see virtually a whole crop wiped out overnight. Spring frosts damage the delicate young leaves recently emerged from buds and the embryonic flower clusters that represent the year’s crop. Only time will tell the full extent of the damage. That’s the bad news; the good news is that the 2020 vintage, which features heavily, has produced some deliciously concentrated wines.
