We all know about Bordeaux, Burgundy and even the Rhône Valley, so what's left in France to discover? A lot actually, from Poulsard to Pineau d'Aunis. One of my favorite obscure wines from France is Fer Servadou. You are not going to find bottles labeled Fer, but if you explore Marcillac and Gaillac you will come across this red variety. When you do, expect to be seduced!
Fer makes somewhat rustic wines, and lovely rosé, which show off the grapes’ dark berry fruit, supported by rather refreshing acidity and moderate if rustic tannins. It is a great country table wine and one that loves food, so don't be shy and say hello to Fer Servadou!
