Do we need one? The authorities certianly think so - it has been ten years in the making afterall. Due to come into effect in 2008 there is to be an Appellation Contrôlée designation covering the whole of the Languedoc and Roussillon regions.

Beverage Daily
"Like many grand ideas, deliberations over an AOC zone have taken many months to mature. But wine officials in the area believe it will help the region, France's biggest for wine production, to become more accessible to consumers at home and abroad.

"The decision taken recently by INAO is the fruit of 10 years work by different commissions," Jean Clavel, head of the Coteaux Languedoc AOC region, told

"I voiced the idea in 1976, taking a lead from professor Milhau, who created Coteaux Languedoc. But I never thought about extending it to Roussillon."
