The Réserve de Marande range offers seductive and generous wines, produced in southern France, in the Languedoc-Roussillon and Gascony region.
Although the Languedon-Roussillon region is home to two big mountain ranges, the Pyrenees and the Cevennes, it also benefits from the Mediterranean climate. With its coastline bordering the area on the South, it brings hot and dry summers after the rainy winters, favoring a perfect maturity of the grapes. In the mountains, the humidity and cool temperatures helps the vines produce grapes packed full with fruity aromas. In this area, the various climates, soils and reliefs means the different varietals express themselves in unique ways.
