Good afternoon Keith, I wanted to follow up on my first question this morning regarding the regions that were formerly Languedoc now Rhone. I noted that Cositeires de Nimes is now part of the Rhone, and I wanted to add a few regions that “I think” were formerly Languedoc and are now Rhone; Tricistan, Cote du Luberon, Cote de Ventoux, and Cote de Vivarais, I just want to double check that I’m on track for the essay for Advanced France (South). Question #2 was around the New World Sommelier project and I noted that two of the areas I’m considering are Long Island and The Finger Lakes Region, I also wanted to check on the Texas area as a possibiltiy. As always, thanks in advance for your counsel. Take care. Rick Hooper
You are very much on the right track.
If you want to follow up, I have another forum post going already: http://www.vinology.com/questions/question/final-project-southern-france
If you post your France questions there, I will be able to kill a few birds with the least amount of stones.
Also, I would say Texas Hill Country would be your best bet for the New World assignment. Hope you are enjoying your summer.
