Continue southwest from Bordeaux, past Toulouse and you reach Fronton, an ancient wine region many have forgotten. It produces a range of truly authentic southern French wines, some using little known native grapes like Négrette. This variety is susceptible to mildew, so it doesn't travel well and is grown hardly anywhere else in France. Shame as its red wines are delightfully silky and gulpable and its rosés, pure delight. Taste here lots of crunchy redcurrant fruit and lemony freshness. It's made by the US born winemaker Nicole McPheeters who, despite her youth, has put in plenty of vintages all over the world. Chill down a bottle and enjoy as a refreshing glass solo or with tofu, spinach and noodles, seafood or marinaded chicken kebabs.
