What's on the tasting table

It's difficult not to have a spring in the step with fresh arrivals on the tasting table including wines from St Chinian, Faugeres, Minervois and Cotes du Roussillon Villages.  Writing about wine does have its moments, and it's not just the wine.  There's something about the mental geographical excursion that gets me too.  These are all coincidentally appellations in the Languedoc-Roussillon region in the south of France that I have studied, night after night, book after book, for the past year or so as part of the WSET diploma.  A nice start to my favourite season in Melbourne, autumn.
