The Undiscovered France: Sud-Ouest & Jurançon Sec #Winophiles

Jurançon Sec

Southwest France (Sud-Ouest) Gets No Respect The Southwest France wine region is a real Cinderella story.  Look at the map, wicked step-sister “Bordeaux” in the same geographic region gets all the glory.  The remainder of the entire region is relegated to anonymity.  I know a Wine Bible can’t include every single region in every single … Continue reading
