As the southernmost wine-growing area in France, the sun-drenched Côtes du Roussillon has been cultivating wines since the 7th century BC, so they probably have gotten the vine thing down by now. Apart from the opulently seductive Vin Doux Naturels for which the region is largely renowned, there are an abundance of delicious, deftly-made, easy-drinking wines that demand only to be opened and enjoyed for their supple freshness and appealing fruit. Rounded and soft, with well-enveloped tannins that do not inhibit the delightful flavors of dark cherry and warm spice, this pleasure-driven red wine is a perfect complement to any Mediterranean cuisine.
Top Value!

This is compellingly good, reasonably priced, wine made from 60% Syrah and 40% Grenache. At this price it is perfect to buy by the case, and to have to serve for those barbecue parties. Nice fruit, and no over-ripeness, accompanied by some Syrah pepper/spice. What's not to like?

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
