Southwest France

The vineyards of the South-West range from the Pyrenees to the borders of the Massif Central, on a dozen departments. The variety of climates, soils and local traditions make it an exciting and original region for the amateur in search of originality: thirty wine growing areas (AOP and IGP) and a wide range of styles and types of wines. The appellations of Bergerac, Marmandais, Duras and Buzet, use the Girondins grape varieties (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc for the reds, Semillon, Sauvignon and Muscadelle for the whites). The vineyards of the Lot Valley and Tarn play the diversity card. In red, Gaillac offers rather supple and spicy wines made from local or imported grape varieties (brocc, duras, syrah, gamay), Fronton uses the negrette that gives roundness and perfume to its reds and rosés, while Cahors owes its reputation to its "black" dense and tannic wines from malbec. Whites are rarer, but Gaillac offers a nice variety: dry, sweet or "sparkling" (slightly sparkling) from rare grape varieties such as mauzac, len el or ondenc. The names of the Bassin de l'Adour contain some nuggets: in red they are madirans and irouléguy, dense, tannic and long-guard. In white, manseng are the origin of the great wines of Jurançon and Pacherenc, dry and sweet. sweet or "beading" (slightly sparkling) from rare grape varieties such as mauzac, len de l'el or ondenc. The names of the Bassin de l'Adour contain some nuggets: in red they are madirans and irouléguy, dense, tannic and long-guard. In white, manseng are the origin of the great wines of Jurançon and Pacherenc, dry and sweet. sweet or "beading" (slightly sparkling) from rare grape varieties such as mauzac, len de l'el or ondenc. The names of the Bassin de l'Adour contain some nuggets: in red they are madirans and irouléguy, dense, tannic and long-guard. In white, manseng are the origin of the great wines of Jurançon and Pacherenc, dry and sweet.
