Roussillon & Languedoc: "wine, food, people, places..." New blog by Richard Mark James

French Mediterranean Wine

This new blog (takes you to it, new window) will include all my Roussillon, Languedoc and other loosely 'southern' French themed material previously published on WineWriting.com (work in progress...), plus the latest stuff, of course, posted as and when from now on. The idea is to create a lively stand-alone site dedicated to this wild wine region featuring:
Roussillon diaries: "My slowly mushrooming winemaker guide to French Catalonia stretching from Maury to Rivesaltes, Perpignan to Collioure and Banyuls-sur-mer via Les Aspres (that's the bit in the middle). 100+ winery blurbs and 950 wines tasted..."
Languedoc profiles: "A logical step to give these 100+ sampled estates their very own fifteen minutes of Languedoc fame... with 700+ wine reviews..." Originally split up into bite-size chunks like this: Coteaux du Languedoc "zones" - Corbières & Fitou - Faugères, Saint-Chinian & Minervois - Limoux, Cabardès & Malepère - Vins de Pays Oc etc. - Sommières & Nîmes.
Wine tasting & travel features: new / archive articles and posts originally published on WineWriting.com or in Decanter and various other magazines and websites. As well as, to help enhance the French Catalan - Occitan - Mediterranean flavouring, any hot or quirky news items worth sharing, south of France restaurant and food tips, my French "wines of the moment" and all that jazz...
