    I had a glass of malbec from the Loire just this past weekend. It was similar to a grenache, if you can believe that. It was certainly different from anything I had tried from Argentina or Cahors.

      The best wine bargains still come from France . . . with Spain and Portugal close behind.

      Just my 2¢; YMMV.

        I second Jason's comment. In my value white wine collection, France reigns supreme.
