It was fun to meet Cork’d Content editor Jon Troutman in real life at the Grenache Symposium in the south of France. We’ve had lots of virtual run-ins because Cork’d works with my family’s wines, but it’s always nice to meet IRL. I’m happy to see he’s still talking about some of the great Languedoc and Roussillon wines that were being showcased at the Symposium.
I promise I’ll visit Richard Case at Domaine Pertuisane and show you some of his old vines, all planted on stoney slopes that produce some of the best Maury I’ve ever tasted. Case compares to even the top cuvées from my friend at Calvet-Thunevin, also producing in Maury, and I’m always happy to discover another great estate in the area. The focus on this wine is power, extraction and density. VERY interesting wine.
