French authorities in the Languedoc are investigating whether négociants and growers exported wines from the Vin de Pays d’Oc appellation that were labeled as Pinot Noir but made from cheaper grape varieties.

Between 2005 and 2008, the Aude department, part of Languedoc, was exporting 160 million bottles worth of Pinot Noir annually. The problem? The entire Languedoc only produces 67 million bottles worth of Pinot each year.
