Les Américains is a Cabardès blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Our unique position so far inland in the Languedoc allows us to balance Mediterranean richness and spice with Atlantic-influenced structure and boldness. Les Amèricains has just enough richness and just enough austerity so that it is approachable to virtually all wine lovers.

When we came to the Languedoc region, everybody talked about “Les Américains”. We will always be Les Américains.
We knew this would be the cuvée that most people saw. It’s not as extreme as our flagship Proprietor’s Reserve, instead designed to be an ambassador to O’Vineyards. The wine that introduces people to our rigorous work ethic, our delicious wines, and (perhaps ironically) our love of France.
As red about our first wine, Les Américains 2005: “Delicious… My favorite… richly extracted, smooth brambly fruit, smoke, pepper, herb, crunchy tannins… an expressive finish that promises to develop...” – Henry Teitelbaum, Wall Street Journal Europe.
