Vintage Wine: Les Américains 2006

Vintage Wine: Les Américains 2006



“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.

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.

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.

  2. Take the exit towards Pennautier. Continue 500m to a small roundabout and go straight over.
  3. Look out for the second road on your right, Avenue des Cévennes which curves up hill (about 1km) to Avenue de la Montagne Noire on the left.
  4. At the last juction, bear left. the road sign “Ave de la Montagne Noire” (confusing as it seems to show a right turn)
  5. After another 500m you will see our red brick color building in the middle of the vines.
