Languedoc and Roussillon: Terroirs & Millésimes 2023

A series of wine tasting and touring reports from a recent trip to the Languedoc and Roussillon will be published on the site piece by piece over the coming months. In the meantime, I've already posted photos of favourite bottles, smiling winemakers, tasty food, pretty locations and historical sightseeing spots on Facebook.com/WineWriting.
Including my red, white, pink and bubbly picks from (highlighted = link to completed post): (Languedoc) Clairette, Saint-Chinian, Fitou, Limoux & Malepère, Pic Saint-Loup & Cabrières (rosé), Grès de Montpellier and Montpeyroux; and (Roussillon) Maury; Côtes Catalanes, Côtes du Roussillon / Villages and Les Aspres; Rancio Sec, Collioure and esoteric Vins Doux Naturels (old Rivesaltes ambré and Muscat, Maury and Banyuls).
Photos here: top = La Tour (or Torre) del Far, Tautavel, Roussillon (cropped in the blog's header image), viewed from the woods in the EcoZonia wildlife park near Cases-de-Pène. Below = tempting lunch table in a vineyard near Terrats, Roussillon, with Le Canigou mountain lurking in the clouds behind.
