Greatest Value Wines of the Year

It came as no surprise to me that the best values I tasted all year came from the south of France. Land ownership costs are mitigated by multigenerational ownership, the climate is relatively easy on grapes and winemaking in the region is becoming more savvy. All should be available for less than $20.

Just to dispel the myth that Mediterranean France makes only red and rosé, I’ve included this brilliant white, a blend of Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Viognier and Clairette. It’s plump and rich in the mouth, yet long and refreshing on the finish. Although I haven’t seen it in the U.S. market yet, it should arrive shortly.
