If you have seen the movie, “A Good Year” featuring Russell Crowe and based on Peter Mayle’s book, A Year in Provence, you will probably recognize the Place de l’Etang in Cucuron in Provence from one of the scenes in the movie. I recently ate lunch at a restaurant located beside this village pond, as well as visited the wine shop at the Chateau la Canorgue film location in the movie. (The chateau is a private, family residence and not open to the public.) I even purchased a couple bottles of the wine “Le Coin Perdu,” which isn’t drinkable for a minimum of one year with 3-5 years being optimal – what a special souvenir from the beautiful film location of a lovely movie.
