You have to do some selecting, but if you do, there's still plenty of with of excellent quality and value from this region in France's Midi. One hint: I avoid the luxury cuvées, as they tend to have a lot of new oak and extraction, which do not work well with the types of grapes grown here.

All wines below are red except as otherwise noted.
