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 mid-weight or brooding, earthy reds. The wines of the Bergerac, Charentais and Côtes de Gascogne appellations serve as good value alternatives to the grander Bordeaux appellations and tend to be earlier drinking. Reds from Irouléguy using the Tannat grape combined with Merlot and Cabernets Franc and Sauvignon reward cellaring. The Jurançon's use of Gros- and Petit Manseng alongside Petit Courbu match Irouléguy's white grapes though are somewhat better known for both its 'Sec' (dry) and late-harvest 'Moelleux' sweet whites.
