Good wines have always a fresh acidity.  Good wines are harmonious.   The top wine Mas des Querne, Le Querne, Terrasses du Larzac, Languedoc-Roussillon, France 2012 awarded “Gold Medal Decanter World Wine Awards 2015”  and these Gens et Pierres Blanc and Rouge are their basic wine for everyday pleasure.
