    ENJOYING AUTHENTIC AND AFFORDABLE RED WINES

    FROM SOUTHWEST FRANCE

    AS THE LEAVES start to turn color, and the weather begins to chill, wine lovers begin to again look for affordable red

    wines to enjoy with fall activities and with those last meals on the deck. Its a great time to enjoy the boyishly rustic, slyly charming, very-affordable red wines of Southwest France.

    DESPITE THEIR FRENCH PEDIGREE, these wines are still considered under the radar, coming from

    a lesser known wine region. Priced under $15 a bottle (and often found at $10 or less!), these wines are often made with indigenous grapes (such as Fer Servadou) combined with the more internationally known varietals (such as Cabernet).

    ALONG WITH BOTH Saint Mont and Ctes de Gascogne appellations that are also known for making great white wines, the following areas represent a good mix of red wine offerings.

    LETS START with red wine from a grape that has become increasing popular with Americans Malbec.

    Cahors, which is located in the hill country north of Toulouse and east of Bordeaux, is the original home of Malbec, the wine that Argentina made wildly popular. Reds from Cahors tend to be big and spicy.

    Try a Cahors producer today: Chteau du Cdre, Clos La Coutale, Georges

    Vigouroux, Clos Triguedina or Chteau Lagrzette

    Madiran is also known for bold reds primarily made with the Tannat and sometimes blended with Fer Servadou or one of the cabernets.

    Try a Madiran producer today: Domaine du Mouili, Chteau Peyros, or

    Chteau Laplace

    Saint Monts reds, just now reaching the American market, are similar to Madiran. They are Tannat-based with similar profiles and matching abilities.

    Try a Saint Mont producer today: Plaimont Producteurs

    Marcillac, near Cahors, is known for its red wines made chiefly from the pleasantly rustic, spicy and somewhat tannic Fer Servadou (also known as Mansoi in the region).

    Try a Marcillac producer today: Domaine du Cros

    Fronton, just on Toulouses doorstep, is home of the wonderfully spicy Negrette grape, full of tart but juicy red fruit flavors.

    Try a Fronton producer today: Domaine le Roc or Chteau Plaisance

    Iroulguy, a tiny appellation tucked deeply into the French Pyrenees, bordering the Atlantic Ocean, is in the heart of the Basque Country. Reds from here tend to be fruit-forward, yet tan-nic and predominately consist of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvi-gnon and Tannat grapes.

    Try an Iroulguy producer today: Domaine Brana, Domaine Illaria, Maison

    Arretxea, or Domaine Etxegaraya

    PERFECT PAIRINGSBoth Fronton Negrette and Madiran Tannat are ideal sipping wines served by the glass at parties, as well as food companions at the table. The bigger, darker wines of the Southwest, such as those made with Malbec and Tannat, pair well with hearty fall foods such as beef, wild game, lamb and stews. Lighter reds match perfectly with pork dishes, salmon, pastas with tomato sauce and even holiday turkey.

    TRY COMFORTING DISHES: Meatloaf, Sirloin/Rib Eye/Short Ribs, over Fingerling Potatoes, Herbs, with a red wine sauce

    TRY FANCY DISHES: Quail sliders, Medallion of Duck Foie Gras with Black Truffles, Beef Bourguignon, Kobe Beef Carpaccio
