Wandering around in France


#1

As The Society currently holds both Decanter’s and the IWC’s Regional France Merchant Awards, it was only right and proper that our Marketing team had a wee tasting hosted by Marcel. Delicious, every last one of them (#wishlistheaven) from a host of appellations and varieties, namely:
Moselle, Urfé, Jurançon, Savoie, Jura, Corsica, Cahors and Monbazillac
Made from:
auxerrois, pinot blanc, Muller-Thurgau, gewurztraminer, viognier, gros manseng, petit manseng, camaralet, courbu, lauzet, mondeuse, trousseau, niellucciu and malbec.








What do you find exciting about wine?

Having been at the same tasting I can see why the Juracon, Geyser is loved, wonderfully fragrant.

Was also impressed with the Viognier which I usually avoid as its usually from the Rhone where its quite heavy whereas this is much lighter and refreshing.

Nice! These should form some sort of offer :wink:

I’ve not had enough Arbois in my life, I’ve loved it when I have.

I have had this and it was wonderfully light and moreish. Not sure if it was the same vintage. I imagine most people would be put off by the pricetag… rightly or wrongly is up for debate

You could always get the same grape from Portugal:
