Lack of Brands: Simon Woods (Wine & Spirit, November 2006) says that although the Languedoc has been touted as France’s New World, there is no southern French equivalent of New Zealand’s Montana [now Brancott Estate], Chile’s Concha y Toro, or Australia’s Penfolds; and while the biggest brand JP Chenet may have a nice bottle, quality-wise its ‘wines leave much to be desired.’
