Igp Mediterranee
Wines on the southeast coast of France often use the broad Méditérranée IGP indication. Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Bandol, and Cotes de Provence are all made this area, though are able to label under a more prestigeous indication. Wines that do not fall within the guidelines of these and other AOCs are welcome to use the Méditérranée IGP.

IGP Méditérranée wines are made in a large area that extends over 10 departments and even includes the island of Corsica, and parts of the Loire and Rhone. Most vineyards are located in the hills and valleys of the Alps and benefit from long sunlight hours and the cool nights of higher altitudes.

Typical southern French grape varieties like Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and Cinsault make red and rosé wine here. Few white wines are produced, mostly from Vermentino, Viognier and Muscat. The diverse range of styles produced calls for a diverse range of pairing. Reds are delicious with grilled and braised meats. (Wine/Appellations)
