What I love about some of the French wines is that they don't try to fit a specific mold. They let the grapes that season decide what flavors they are going to take on and add and adjust to those. I had a fantastic white wine that had been aged in oak in a little vineyard in the languedoc Roussillon region that had a light buttery carmeled taste to it with a finish of roasted almonds. It was probably the best white wine I've ever tried. In general though I prefer dry red wines.
Probably the Languedoc Roussillon.. Although I love some Bordeaux wines as well
I prefer mediterranean food and pretty much any well made dessert.. (I am a pastry chef)
I just came back from spending 10 months in France and visited a lot of wineries in the Languedoc Roussillon region and the Cote du Rhone among a few others. Loved learning about them there and would like to continue to learn here.
