Some good friends from the far reaches of France have arrived in Bangkok! From Maury and surrounding area, this part of the South is extremely isolated. Off the beaten path seems almost too kind.
But like the few newcomers to the area at the foothills of the Pyrenees, Carrie & Marcel, are carving out some fantastically wild wines from the textural and saline Macabeo, as well as Syrah, Grenache and also Lladoner Pelut or hairy Grenache. The French authorities have recognized Cotes Catalanes as an IGP, which helps to distinguish the area from the larger Roussillon region, however when organic growers, ferment naturally, and age their wines different, the last resort may just be a Vin de France classification, which as you may know, if now brimming with some of the best names in any region.
