Buzet is an AOC in Southwest France, formerly known as Côtes de Buzet until 1986. The region is close to the Atlantic Ocean, with other climatic influences from the Garonne and the Pyrenees. It is located to the west of Toulouse and east of Bordeaux.

  • Today my sweetie and I went to taste wines at two wine shops in Northern ... ... the tasting we grabbed the Buzet as it was pretty tasty.  Overall, a nice sunny day, below freezing though and with another wintery mix coming Sunday, but still a good day for the end of February 2015.  Once home, we did a short walk before the sun set and found a...
