My neck-o-the-woods is known for two good red wines; Bergerac, and Pécharmant. My preference is for the latter. Perfect to accompany my last saturday's posting of Confit de Canard.
I've recently been stocking up on the one above, which I'll probably offer to guests (I myself drink 'piquette'). If you look closely, you'll see that it contains 14% alc.
When I first moved over here, one could still buy 'lunchtime' wine in starred litre bottles (Nicolas) of about 6% alc. This is no longer available, probably thanks to the meddling EU bureaucrats. Frankly, I find 14% wine far too strong (unless your intention is to get drunk; which mine isn't).
So, regardless of the modern fashion for those unnecessary extra degrees; Cheers! And no, I'm NOT on commission.
