North-west of Montpellier, backing onto the Séranne massif which extends the Massif Central, the appellation Languedoc - Montpeyroux takes its name from the village located in the heart of the vineyard. When we know that in Occitan the expression Mount Peirós is translated by Mount Pierreux, are then guessed the first qualities of the soil. It turns out stony on the causse and clay-limestone on the terraces on the hillsides. More precisely, we see the limestone scree alternating with sands and blue marls deposited by the sea during the Tertiary era. Often exposed to winds, inheriting from the reliefs a rainfall that compensates for Mediterranean droughts, the terroir of Montpeyroux offers the vines favorable sanitary conditions. The appellation wines are exclusively made from red grape varieties, mainly containing Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah, supplemented by Carignan and Cinsault. The cuvées are made by blending at least three grape varieties, including a main grape variety in a proportion of 40% minimum. Breeding is compulsory there until at least mid-June. The qualities of the terroir combined with the particular climatological conditions give the wines of the appellation Languedoc - Montpeyroux freshness and structure, where the dominant ripe fruit and spices flirt with the scents of garrigue.
