JONATHAN RAY travels round Roussillon with Conseil Interprofessionnel des Vins du Roussillon export director Eric Aracil, passing through some of the 35,000 hectares of Grenache, Carignan, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvdre. 'Although it's sunny, it can be cold and windy here, with damp blown in from the sea. But the weather, the grapes and the low yields all result in intense and fascinating wines,' Domaine Ferrer Ribire winemaker Bruno Ribire tells Ray over dinner in the tiny village of Terrats.
