The IGP Pays d’Oc: between renewal and imagination

Today, we invite you to discover the IGP Pays d’Oc. As a reminder, the protected geographical indication (PGI) allows consumers to identify an agricultural product, whose quality, production or reputation are associated with its geographical origin.

IGP Pays d’Oc: an appellation extended to multiple realities

IGP Pays d'oc is an appellation that crosses four departments, or 120,000 hectares: Gard, Hérault, Aude and the eastern Pyrenees. It is a protected geographical indication with very different geological and geographical realities. The Languedoc-Roussillon region is made up of plains, valleys, hillsides, terraces, mountains…

The soils are also of great richness and diversity. There are soils composed of pebbles, clay and tawny sand towards the beaches. The soils can also be: limestone, shale, clay or gravel, stony on the plains and hillsides…

This large territory provides a diversity of climate ranging from Mediterranean to temperate influences.

Working with IGP Pays d’Oc wines allows you to discover all the richness of the Languedoc-Roussillon terroirs.

Freedom and creativity:

The IGP Pays d’Oc was driven by professionals in the sector. The winegrowers had a very specific project, that of gaining freedom over the composition of their wines, outside the specifications of their respective appellations. Thus, in 1987, winegrowers who were fighting for the freedom to make varietal wine while being recognized in their geographical area saw their wishes granted with the creation of the IGP Pays d'Oc!

Creativity and freedom led these men to create this new protected geographical indication. From now on, more than 58 grape varieties fall within the specifications of this IGP, whether as a blend or as a single grape variety: such as Merlot and Syrah for reds, Sauvignon and Chardonnay for whites or even Cinsault or Grenache. gray for rosés!

IGP Pays d'Oc allows us to free ourselves from traditional codes and offer original, modern wines taking advantage of the richness of the Languedoc-Roussillon vineyards.
