Terre de Cocagne 2019
Charmed by southern France’s local grapes like Loin de l’Oeuil and Mauzac, winemaker Nicole McPheeters has made it her mission to reintroduce wine fans to the delights of Gaillac’s Côtes du Tarn. A crisp, citrusy alternative to Sauvignon Blanc.
Le Vin Blanc de Mademoiselle Fifi 2018
Top critic Robert Parker muses that Gascony’s exhilarating whites could be France’s “greatest white wine value.” Named after an elegant Parisian, this citrusy Colombard-Sauvignon blend makes a strong case – with FIVE gold medals and a modest price.
Domaine de Guingal Cahors Malbec 2009
It’s high time for French Malbec – the original Malbec – to take its place in the spotlight. And after 10 years of mellowing out in the bottle, this perfectly mature, dual-gold medalist from the sunny southwest is a great (re)introduction.
