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.

TASTING NOTES

Seductive softly spoken Burgundian toast aspect with just a miniature, delicate, swathe of butter. Then a touch of sweet vanilla, purest citrus with a grapefruit tinge and bundles of energy. Bursting minerality and acidity beams and shines carrying the wine on a wave of limey purity that even a lime would be jealous of. Tingling in its vivacity and drive....

It took Michel six years of observing and analysing to gain an understanding of this very rich and complex terroir.

TASTING NOTES

Vin de Paille is the region's 'straw wine.' A wine made by concentrating the grapes (Chardonnay, Savagnin and Poulsard) on straw mats to raisins concentrating the flavours. It takes 100 kilograms of grapes to produce just 10 litres of Vin de Paille meaning the wine is very limited. Flavours are rich and concentrated with a flavour spectrum from honey and...

Notes of lime and orange blossoms abound alongside stony, nuanced mineral. There is a fullness here that is finely balanced by a graceful, delicate mint and sage freshness.  This Clos du Bourg Demi Sec treads like a tightrope walker between citrus acidity and the sweet florals of honeysuckle.  Complex and incredibly fine, this wine was made in minute quantities.  What...
