Our Sommelier Lionel Lachasseigne shares his passion for the wine of his stunning home region at this special Languedeoc wine dinner
This fantastic event will take place on Saturday 9 February in one of our wonderful rooms in the Grade II listed main house.
Lionel grew up in Montpellier on the eastern side of Languedoc, France’s largest wine producing region and has been enjoying the wines there from a young age. The Romans brought vines to this area more than 6,000 years ago along with some amazing architecture, including the amphitheatre at Nimes and the staggering viaduct at Pont du Gard. More recently New World winemakers have arrived in the region introducing new techniques and bringing different vines which have all helped improve the wines. Unsurprisingly Languedoc-Roussillon was originally two regions. Languedoc’s vineyards stretch along the coastline while in Roussillon the vines cling to the clifftops or take shelter in the foothills of the Pyrenees, dividing France from Spain. Its hot and dry Meditteranean climate helps the region produce an amazing range of wine, light reds, whites, roses, sweet Muscat and even sparkling Limoux. Come along to our wine dinner to enjoy Lionel’s handpicked selection of some of the best wines from Languedoc accompanied by a gastronomic tour of the region’s delights.
