A Fantastic Year for Whites
The biggest surprise of this year’s Top 100 was the incredible quality of the region’s white wines. 40% of this year’s Top 100 wines are white wines, which is incredible given that whites account for only 13% of the region’s wine production. Even jury member Rosemary George MW commented on this when writing about her experience judging the Top 100 in her blog http://tastelanguedoc.blogspot.co.uk. Having noted that the best flight she tasted during the judging was white, she says: “It makes me think that the whites of the Languedoc are too often overlooked and under-appreciated, and really should be taken much more seriously. They stand very happily alongside the reds”.
