Re:

Since we moved to Perpignan we dine frequently at Arbequina in Thuir. Smart, modern cooking, well-selected wines, excellent service. Irresistible dessert - the Chocol@cara.mel.

In Laroque we love les Enfants Terribles.

Re: Why no PO fizz?

Limoux produces decent bulles, ditto our southern neighbours yet there seems to be no local product within say 30 mins drive of perpignan. Happy to be corrected however if this is correct is it just tradition or are there technical reasons non is produced? I disagree, Tony. I don't like Blanquette ...

Re: Best PO Reds, whats yours?

I buy 6 bottles of Clos des Fées les Sorcières every summer.
But best wine hereabout, always highly ranked by Hachette, is Dom Rossignol le Graal. Dom Rossignol is at the entrance to Passa.

Mille mercis
Italvinus has all the Italian wines I could ever want.
My new house has a nice wine cellar. I expect to fill many of its empty spaces.

Re: Where to buy good italian wines here

Thank you.
That looks like a source of wines worth researching.
They have Livio Felluga Friulano.

My favorite wine is l'Amourette from Thunévin-Calvet at the entrance of Maury. However, for the first time in a number of y...

Re: Coops worth visiting?

Hello, I am American and very knowledgeable in French wine. I do not buy BinB's; I only drink from bottles.
I believe the best coops - and I note that I no longer buy from them - are Baixas, Terrats and Maury in that order.
