If you know where to look, France’s Pays d’Oc
region is a trove of ridiculously good values,
like this vibrant, silky Chardonnay.
What You Need To Know
The Pays d’Oc (“pay-ee dock”)
is a vast and immensely varied wine region that covers most of
France’s Mediterranean coast. Château Grézan is located in
Faugres, a rugged, hilly appellation inland from Béziers that’s
cooler than the coastal plains below. The “château” is actually
a jaw-dropping fortress, built in the late 19th century as a
reconstruction of a medieval stronghold of the Knights Templar.
The Lanson family (of Champagne fame) sold Grézan’s vineyards
and winery to two local winegrowers, Remi Fardel and Jean Louis
Pujol, in 1988 (though the Lansons still count the château as
a family home). What distinguishes this Chardonnay are its crisp,
bright fruit flavors—a result, in part, of the region’s schist-laden
soils and cool nights.
