The 2007 growing season was somewhat cool and the results are not unlike the 2002s, also a cool year although one that suffered harvest downpours to the east of the region.
I'm not going to even begin discussing the merits of various wine closures. Whatever the problems with tradition corks and corked wine, nothing beats the look of them. So what to do with all those pulled corks and, in the Languedoc, increasingly rare wooden wine cases?
Here are some ideas.
A sculpture with corks, part of a wine box
and a vine leaf
Or a bedside shelf with a wine box
Maybe some bathroom shelves
Perhaps a door fly screen
Or simply box in some pipes
