2011 Harvest Photos

These are some of my favorite 2011 harvest photos from around the Languedoc Roussillon.  In no particular order.  Each photo links to the original site where you can find much more content.  I encourage you to go and visit the region’s wonderful winemaking bloggers. And of course check out the fuller list of harvest updates I posted earlier or photos from 2010 harvest.

Languedoc Outsiders Wine Tasting

Meet the Languedoc Outsiders, a group of winemakers who have all fallen head over heels for Languedoc Roussillon wines.  And for the sake of full disclosure: I’m a happy member of the group.

Last year, the Languedoc Outsiders held a successful tasting event at Sud de France’s Maison du Languedoc Roussillon in London.  And now the group is coming home to do a tasting in our own back yard.  The group’s Montpellier tasting is going to be Chez Boris in the centreville of Montpellier

Those readers who have been following the group closely probably notice that there are some changes in the roster.  The new additions are Vella Frontera (Roussillon) and Domaine Sainte Rose (Cotes de Thongue).

South of France synchronized worldwide tasting

Here is part 1 of the higher quality recording of our live broadcast for the South of France synchronized tasting.

I was accompanied by Malorie from Chateau Le Bouïs, Aude Campos, and Matthew Stubbs and Emma Kershaw of Vinecole.

I know I promised an edit, but it just feels better in that unedited Blair Witch style. Enjoy.  We’ll upload the rest soon, or you can watch the whole syncrhonized tasting in low fidelity.

The wines:
Grande Cuvée 1531, Sieur d’Arques, AOP Crémant de Limoux
Fruité Catalan 2009, Vignerons Catalans, AOP Cotes du Roussillon

Oh, and our question about the varietal composition ofthe Fruité Catalan: Syrah 60 %, Grenache Noir 25 %, Carignan 10 % et Macabeu 5 %.  according to the documentation Vignerons Catalans emailed me post-tasting.
