Midi Wines

In viticultural terms, the Midi region in the South West of France is known for its production of simple, dry white wines, moelleux dessert wines and brooding, earthy reds. The white wines of the Bergerac area serve as good value alternatives to the grander Bordeaux appellations further West and Christian Roche at Domaine de l’Ancienne Cure offers some stunning examples. For Sauternes, read Monbazillac, a marvellous accompaniment to foie gras, whilst the Semillon/Sauvignon blend of Bergerac Sec is a marvellous substitute for Graves. For lovers of dark, tannic, muscular reds, Iroulèguy, made from the Tannat grape in the heart of the Basque country, is the place to turn your attention. Peio Espil’s two marvellous reds and his outstanding rosé will not fail to impress. Jurançon (near Pau) has won a reputation for producing highest quality, late-harvested, non-botrysised sweet wine from Petit and Gros Manseng grapes. Pascal Labasse stands out as a leading vigneron in the region and also makes a refreshing, dry white from the same varieties.
