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

Grassy and floral with spicy lift. Stone fruits and lemon flesh. This is taut, intense and long with excellent concentration, direction and drive. The ripe fruit which is characteristic of Zotzenberg is perfectly balanced by surging minerality and crisp, bright acidity. This will reward cellar time but is already lovely to drink and I wouldn’t hesitate to decant and drink...

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....

FRENCH WINE REGIONS

The variety of conditions between, and even within, the main French wine regions, is what makes wine in France so diverse and exciting.
