Plô Roucarels – Languedoc, je t’aime Episode 5

Un nouvel épisode à la cave de Plô Roucarels avec la vigneronne elle-même. Les propriétaires, un couple de jeunes passionnés du vin, Julia Hubrich et Julien Gil nous font découvrir deux vins créés sur ce petit domaine de moins de deux hectares: un monocépage Carignan et un assemblage de Carignan et de Syrah. Nous avons également fait une dégustation de vin en fût. Très interessant!

Sheep Cheese – Nota Bene 3

Another episode with my wonderful parents.  We’re an absurd family tasting an absurd cheese.

My family and I had a fromage brebis at lunch today that had a really unique and knock-your-socks-off flavor. Brebis is a female sheep. We like cheese and we actually enjoy sheep cheese on a regular basis.

This is an exception though. Man, this cheese tastes the way a petting zoo smells. I’m not sure what to make of it, but it’s a Pyrenees cheese (south of Roussillon) and so it’s part of the food and culture of the Languedoc Roussillon. I hope you like this short bonus episode more than we liked the cheese.

Juliet Bruce-Jones, Master of Wine – Episode 4 Love that Languedoc

Juliet Bruce Jones, a Master of Wine, swings by the vineyard and presents three excellent wines. Two dry red wines and a sweet dessert wine. Obviously, all of them come from that good old Languedoc.

I guess my favorite part of this episode is when we guiltily start referring to the spit bucket as a blend of fine AOC wine. :D

As always, thank you for watching. New world, meet the Languedoc!

Wines tasted:
Domaine Perdiguier 2006, Vin de Pays Coteaux D’ensérune
La Jasse-Castel 2007, AOC Coteaux du Languedoc Montpeyroux
Domaine Barroubio 2007, Muscat de St-Jean de Minervois
