Another great description of life in SW France and some stunning pictures. I believe the pigeonniers were built to use the bird droppings as natural fertilizer. Some birds did get eaten, of course.
I would certainly like to try that Mauzac.


When I look to buy French wines which is I mostly drink, I look for the ones that are made using traditional and organic vinification methods, old world style with longer maceration and higher tannin. Im tired of the new world fruity koolaid tasting wines, most notably South American Malbec ! its to fruity to polished weak tannin most of it tast the same, I don't buy it any more. I hope French wines ( are you listening Cahors ) dont fall into the trap of making their wines to new world style, South american Malbec faces becoming a fad wine and most people I know are tired of it already. Stay strong to your traditional wine making France and Cahors Malbec.
