Lime, Cote Catalanes (France)
Tom Lubbe, from South Africa to a small village of 300 people in Roussillon, with no return.
It was 2002 and in a short time Tom has become a cult producer not only for the wonderful terroir of Lime.
Its wines are taut, nervous and mineral like the granite on which the old vines are planted, at the same time graceful and ethereal, like the wind that inevitably combs those wild hills.
