Resurging French wine sales in the UK are helpful in jogging the memory of some lesser-known appellations, Joanna Simon believes. Forget Bordeaux and think more to the south and east, she says, with Madiran, Ctes de Saint-Mont, Cahors, Gaillac and Fronton all names to look out for. The 2004 Cahors, Le Petit Clos Triguedina (7.99, Waitrose) has "classic blackberry and graphite flavours with fine tannins" while the 2005 Madiran Rserve des Tuguets (4.99, Tesco) features for its "herb and wood-smoke flavours".
