Comté Tolosan

One of the seven major regional IGP areas for the production of country wines in France. The other six are Atlantique, Comtés Rhodaniens, Méditerranée, Pays d'Oc, Terres du Midi and Val de Loire. It is located in the southwest and includes the 12 departments of Ariège, Aveyron, Cantal, Gers, Haute-Garonne, Hautes-Pyrénées, Landes, Lot, Lot-et-Garonne, Pyrénées-Atlantiques, Tarn and Tarn-et-Garonne. The "County of Toulouse", which existed until 1271, was a feudal territory and comprised part of it. The area is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the west, Spain to the south, and the French regions of Languedoc-Roussillon to the east and Bordeaux to the north. The narrower geographical names Bigorre, Cantal, Coteaux et Terrasses de Montauban, Haute-Garonne, Pyrénées-Atlantiques and Tarn-et-Garonne can be added to the name Comté Tolosan. Other independent IGP areas are Aveyron, Cotes de Gascogne, Côtes du Tarn, Gers and Lavilledieu. The AOC area for the brandy Armagnac is also located here.

The Wine lexicon helps me to keep up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to come back often.
