Since 1870, in the wine business of the Languedoc, the Jeanjean family, today a large company in wine, exists in the South of France. It is almost a "dishwasher" story: the cooper who once bought a vineyard and makes it to the wholesaler who owns many vineyards and has long been a global company. You can't get past his wines - if you're talking about the Languedoc.
I admit, it's not the kind of winemaking I look for and appreciate. I tend to avoid the wines from the perfected wine business - omnipresent in the Languedoc. Purely the idea of how many different wines are made in the empire and how they are made - in technically perfect facilities - reminds me frighteningly of assembly line production.
