Vive the Roussillon

Back from Maury : We spent 3 days in a nice bed & breakfast and our weekend went by fast.
We spent the weekend with visits, lunches and dinner. Hard to resist and avoid gaining weight with all this wine!
We started with the fine restaurant of Pascal Borrell located in the Maison du Terroir. It largely deserves the Michelin star it recently received. We took this opportunity to drink a wonderful wine “De battre mon cœur s’est arrêté” (in other words “The Beat That My Heart Skipped) from our friend Hervé Bizeul, as well as a wine from the Cave Cooperative of Maury. It is now able to compete with many of the new private wineries which are opening every day in this region. The work on our new cellar and housing are going fast: work should be done before the 2008 harvest.

The en primeur campaign is still difficult. I bought 1500 bottles of Rouget 2007, Pomerol, and which has one of the best quality/price ration.
Fortunately, for wines available and in stock, business if rather good. We just received a very nice order from and broker on the behalf of a large wine merchant from Bordeaux.
Vive Bordeaux.
