I've had some really good wines from the Languedoc-Rousillon region recently. As far as I can tell, the area doesn't seem to suffer from the problem of region-wide hype-inflated prices like Bordeaux or Burgundy.

If you can get it, try Chateau Haut-Blanville Grand Cuvée 2004. I've drunk from three bottles of this and each has been excellent. I've also tried a red wine from Château Saint-Jean d'Aumières which had a strong cassis smell.

Has anyone else had anything interesting from Languedoc recently? Or any other wine?

no, they just suffer in general…except for a handful that mostly had money to start with…a shame, great wines there…and angry farmers…déjà vu all over again

Any examples of the great wines?

Rectified L-D wine is what Pernod Fils used as their alcohol base.

This has jack shit to do w/ French wine, but I had a bottle of this Australian wine called The Battle of Bosworth which I thought was pretty good for the price. It was around $28, and it's super concentrated, earthy, almost chocolatey, with a bold alcohol kick. Definitely not a light summer wine, but I can picture Ulysses S. Grant drinking it for breakfast. I'd recommend it, it's not for drinkers who don't like deep wines, but I liked it.
