In the 90th we owned the Swedish wine import company Via Domitia, which was specialized on Languedoc wine. Now, as retired and living in Languedoc, we are still interested in wine and have the opportunity to have our former producers nearby and also to explore many new vine-yards. We like to share that experience with you in this guide.

DOMAINE ROQUE SESTIERE – 8, rue des Etangs. 1200 Luc sur Orbieu

A bit unusual for Corbières, this vine-yard concentrates on white wine. They have three different cuvee of white, one red and one rose – all of them are AOP Corbières. 

A favorite since many years is the white cuvée Vielles Vignes that goes very well with more elaborate fish dishes. We have howver not tasted the prestige white Gouttes d’Or that is made from 50/50 of Roussanne and Grenache Blanc. Friends of us has however praised it and it has to live up to that for a prize of 14 euros, which is quite a lot for a white wine from the region. Do not misunderstand,  the white wines are mostly superb – fruity and pleasant, but they are generally not of the kind that you can save for more than a couple of years.
