This one of the five communes surrounding Montpellier that make up the subregional zone of Coteaux du Languedoc called Grès de Montpellier. There is an extensive range of wines produced here; Cascaille is a white Coteaux du Languedoc using Grenache Blanc, Roussanne and Rolle. Their reds include Le Mas - intended for early drinking and the flagship wine La Copa Santa which is predominantly Syrah with a dash of Grenache.
The vineyards of the modest village of Vosne Romanée are arguably the most sought after in the Côte d'Or. It is host to excellent Village and Premier Cru wines, but it is its most famous Grand Crusthat truly stand out: Romanée-Conti, La Tâche, Richebourg, Grands Echézeaux, Echézeaux, Romanée St. Vivant and La Romanée as well as Cros Parentoux, a Premier Cru vineyard which attracts Grand Cru attention (and prices). Vosne-Romanée can be remarkably robust and powerful, yet be charming and fleshy giving it one of the most diverse styles of the region.
