Roussillon Wine

The Roussillon is a giant wine-producing region in the south of France. With the Languedoc, it produces something like a quarter of France’s total wine output. Culturally, the region is Catalan -- it is just across the Pyrenees from Spain’s Cataluña region.  Some of the best wines from this region are dessert wines. Muscat de Rivesaltes has been famous since the 14th century. Maury and Banyuls are some otehr excellent dessert wines from the region. The Roussillon also produces plenty of ripe, southerly dry red wine, with Grenache acting as the main variety, and a little white.

I'm not sure where the money is from, but they're one of the better promotional groups for a region. They're as good as the Argentines actually - there's some kind of event ... Read More

  • Barons de Rothschild Lafite Pauillac Reserve Speciale 2010

    Snoothrank:

    My brother-in-law - perhaps a little intimidated by my knowledge of French wine (which is modest), bought me this blend from Rothschild. As a cuvee, it is quite good... all the expected definition of a Pauillac (rouge). Very nervy, with a lot of light tannin, this wine is perfect now for any number of meat dishes; there is a herbaceous nose and... Read More
