Languedoc and Roussillon: Terroirs & Millésimes 2023

Coming soon: a series of wine tasting and touring reports from a recent trip to the Languedoc and Roussillon will be published here over the next few weeks. 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: (Languedoc) Clairette, Saint-Chinian, Fitou, Limoux, Malepère, Pic Saint-Loup, Cabrières, Grès de Montpellier and Montpeyroux; and (Roussillon) Maury sec, Côtes du Roussillon, Villages and Les Aspres; Côtes Catalanes, 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.
