Provence has emerged in recent years with a number of exciting high quality small domaines from most of her appellations. The change has been less dramatic than in the Midi, but here too many quality-minded individuals are bringing a new focus to viticulture and expressing the potential of their terroirs. The role of Provence as a purveyor of easy drinking pink plonk to sun-seeking tourists is gradually changing and indeed many of the examples are much improved. Some interesting wines and fortified styles are emerging from Corsica although the wines remain hard to find outside France. In the main they continue to be traditional, the best offering real character.
