For the stage around Muret, in the South-West, don’t miss the incredible Armagnac Darroze! The Grands Assemblages in particular are perfect discoveries for those who do not yet know Armagnac. For connoisseurs, the 20, 30 and even 60 year olds are rare gems, perfect for long evenings in front of “Le Tour”! Maybe even with a square of Valrhona dark chocolate.
Already in Roman times, people drank aniseed wine mixed with plants. At the end of the 19th century, absinthe, a popular aniseed drink, became the number one drink in France. But the First World War sounded the death knell for this emblematic aperitif, and banned any alcohol over 16 degrees.
However, the habit of aniseed-flavoured drinks, mixed with water, persisted. In 1920, the French government authorised aniseed-flavoured drinks up to 30 degrees of alcohol. The first pastis officially appeared in 1932 and it was during this post-war period, with the arrival of paid holidays, that this aniseed-flavoured drink took on the connotation of “holiday drinks” and became the favourite aperitif of the French.

Which wine do you recommend from one of the regions the Tour de France 2021 goes through and why?
The rosé bio La Résistance 2019 is a beautiful light pink, with delicate aromas of soft summer fruits. Full flavoured, refreshing on the palate with a lingering finish of ripe raspberries. Delicious as an aperitif. Perfect accompaniment to starters, salads and barbecues.
What would you serve with this wine?
Asparagus, prosciutto and creamy brie.
