Are You Hooked On Varietal Labels?
I recently had the pleasure of attending a wine tasting and luncheon that featured the wines of Southwest France. The event took place at BLT Steak in Washington DC and was hosted by Fred Dexheimer of Juiceman Consulting. Fred is very passionate about this Old World wine-producing region and provided a lot of information throughout the duration of the function. The purpose of this get-together was to highlight, as well as to promote, the wines of Southwest France, or as the French say, Sud-Ouest. The Sud-Ouest is an often overlooked wine-producing region that delivers quality wines at reasonable prices. A few weeks after this event, I recall telling a few friends about the food and wines I enjoyed. It was then that I realized that while a few of my friends enjoy a good Virginia (or New World) “Petit Manseng,” “Tannat,” or “Malbec,” they had no clue what wines I was referring to when I said, “Jurançon,” “Madiran,” and “Cahors.”
Enjoy Malbec? Try the wines of Cahors.
