PGI Pays d’Oc: No contract, no approval for 2016 rosés

Thursday September 15 2016 by Vitisphere

Any request for rosé wines to be labelled PGI Pays d’Oc for the 2016 financial year will require a mandatory accompanying contract”, stated the PGI Pays d’Oc marketing board (InterOc ) recently, in no uncertain terms. Approved at the organisation’s AGM on August 4, talk of the measure had been in the air since July, with a view to restoring a balance between rosé supply and market demand. The requirement does not involve companies with three-yearly contracts or those who sell their wines directly from the cellar door.

The risk of a shortage of red wine, which we came close to at the end of the last financial year, has now been ruled out, but it must not happen again”, said a statement by InterOc. The marketing board hopes to restore a long-term balance between production of reds and rosés. The readjustment process began in the last financial year which saw tension over the reds – with inventories dangerously low and prices rising on average by 3% to €93.31/hl – and excess supplies of rosé. In the latter case, high availabilities led to a 2% drop in prices to €88.4/hl.
