A tasting event full of some delicious wines

From Past to Future

With so much flexibility, producers have been of two minds; some are looking to create signature wines that embrace the spirit of the region, while others look to the market in hopes that they can meet unfulfilled demand.  There are great opportunities for the consumer and the retail trade with producers that follow either path.
Take for our first example the 2011 Foncalieu, Les Fontanelles, Sauvignon Blanc ($10). Crisp and pure, this is a wonderful example of Sauvignon Blanc that blends the fruit forward character the marketplace clamors for with some of the crispness and minerality that France’s Sauvignon Blancs are famous for. Inexpensive and a perfect partner for goat cheese and light dishes, it illustrates how Pays d’Oc has made the transition from the anonymous bulk wines of the Vins de Pays days to today’s fighting varietals.
