The Sud-Ouest: Welcome to France’s most complicated wine region

Some wine regions are fairly easy to understand. Burgundy, the easiest, has essentially two main grapes and a very defined style of wine. Bordeaux is a touch more complicated, but mention it to an amateur wine lover and they will usually be able to offer a general description of the wines on offer there. 928 more words

The tank grape’s native home is in the southwest of France, and in particular the appellation of Madiran and westward toward the Pyrenees, where it is the primary grape of the Basque appellation of Irouléguy. 206 more words

【法國五月酒】by Wylie

每年的法國五月節已經成為我們生活的一部份,雖然不一定會參與各項目,但是這個推廣又真是做到生活上的各層面都有,由音樂到美術、建築到佳餚美酒,大街小巷甚至超市都會見到。

今年他們決定推廣法國西南部的美酒、美食和旅遊,這個區域保留着郊外和山區面貌,著重本身的風土人情,風景秀麗,可以於這個五月先認識多一點,再決定是否成為你下一站的旅遊目的地。

個人推介可參加五月十六、十七一連兩天在赤柱的市集,應該有很多美食如風乾火腿、芝士、鵝肝等。酒方面有 Cahors (即 Malbec) 、Madiran 等,都是平日較少接觸的。還有就是 Armagnac ,是一種和干邑差不多,也是用葡萄釀酒再蒸餾的烈酒,陳年的話…㑹相當醇厚,令人回味!
