Discover the grape variety: Colombaud
The colombaud grape variety is equally appreciated as a white table grape and as a wine grape. Originally from Provence, it is practically no longer found in the vineyards. It is known under several other names, including poupousaoumo, courambaou and bouteillan. An amber veil covers them on the sides most exposed to the sun. The thin, crumbly greenish skin protects an ellipsoidal or spherical pulp, juicy and firm in consistency. The pulp has a simple, pleasant and slightly spicy taste. The berries are gathered in bunches carried by strong peduncles. The grapes are of medium length, compact and cylindrical-conical in shape, often with fins, and are harvested at the third medium period, as the grapevine buds late. Short pruning is best suited to this semi-erect plant, which likes exposed, warm soil.

The wine region of Vin de Pays
Vin de Pays (VDP), the French national equivalent of PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) at the European level, is a quality category of French wines, positioned between Vin de Table (VDT) and Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC). This layer of the French appellation system was initially introduced in September 1968 by the INAO, the official appellation authority. It underwent several early revisions in the 1970s, followed by substantial changes in September 2000 and again in 2009, when all existing VDT titles were automatically registered with the European Union as PGI. Producers retain the choice of using either the VDP or PGI titles on their labels, or both - in the form "IGP-Vin de Pays".
The wine region of Pays d'Oc
Pays d'Oc is the PGI for red, white and rosé wines that are produced over a wide area of the southern coast of France. The PGI catchment area corresponds roughly to the Languedoc-roussillon">Languedoc-Roussillon wine region, one of the largest wine regions in France. The area covers all wines that are not produced under the strict laws that govern AOC-level appellations in the regions: among them, Corbières, Minervois and the Languedoc appellation itself. The Pays d'Oc PGI is arguably the most important in France, producing the majority of the country's PGI wines.
