FRANCE

France benefits from a range of locations and climates that are suitable for growing wines, resulting in a diverse range of varieties and styles. Emphasis remains as much on tradition as technology, with particular significance placed on the expression of terroir. The finest wine-producing regions are Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne and Rhône.

Other significant areas include Alsace, Beaujolais, Chablis, Jura, Loire, and south west France. A predominantly red wine-producing country, less than a quarter of all wine consumed in France is white.

The most widely planted variety is Carignan, with other significant red varieties being Grenache, Merlot, Cinsaut and Cabernet Sauvignon. Ugni Blanc dominates the white grape plantings as the main variety used in the production of Cognac. The other principal white varieties are Chardonnay and Sémillon.

Rich and exuberant with tropical hints and spice. Fresh acidity and earthy minerality provide backbone and this has good length. A wonderfully composed Pinot Gris with everything in exactly the right place. Succulent and charming, this will drink really well as soon as it lands.
