If you have never drunk any white wine from Roussillon, you are in for a complete surprise. Who would have thought that this sun-soaked, arid terrain could produce such elegant white wines, with lively acidity? My fellow judge, Justin Howard-Sneyd MW, summed it up when he said: ‘One of the major takeaways from the Master of Wine trip to the Roussillon in 2019 was the sheer quality of the white wines.’ And I agree.
