Item description for Wine Tours in the South of France by Florence Hernandez...

This book takes readers on an informative and picturesque stroll through the sun-drenched regions of the south of France, which in the past 15 years has dramatically revamped its wine-growing and vinification procedures. As experts like Robert Parker begin to take notice, many wine enthusiasts are flocking to this beautiful region where they can explore the wineries firsthand and take advantage of the unusually affordable prices while they last. Each region, with its own quaint village, is photographed through the changing seasons, and the most prestigious estates are explored in detail. From white wine to red, from subtle to full-bodied, the expert makers of these new-generation wines invite us to share in their passion.

In addition to complete information about the region and its vineyards, Fine Wines from the South of France provides practical information like ideal food matches for the region's delicious wines. For example, the Muscat of Banyuls and Maury, often enjoyed as an aperitif, is the perfect accompaniment to tantalizing chocolate desserts. From the Queen of Denmark's vineyard in Cahors, to the rosés of Provence, and the fortified wines of Corsica, southern France offers a diverse array of wines for all occasions.

The regions and wines detailed in this book include: the southwest (Buzet, Cahors, Irouléguy, Juranýon, Madiran), Languedoc (Costières de Nîmes, Muscat, Minervois, Cabardès, Corbières), Roussillon (Banyuls, Collioure, Maury), southern Rhône valley (Châteauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, Muscat de Beaumes de Venise), Provence (Bandol, Cassis, Côtes de Provence, Palette), and the idyllic island of Corsica (Muscat du Cap Corse, Patrimonio).
