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.

85% Merlot/15% Cabernet Franc. First impressions are focused on fresh fruit, a lovely nose of red and black berries that still retain a certain crunchiness. On the palate, there is remarkable precision as well as a creamy texture, a charming combination. The ripe Merlot marries beautifully with the more alert Cabernet Franc and it’s the quality of the tannins that...

TASTING NOTES

Bright yellow. Ripe yellow apple, strawberry and hints of truffle and iodine on the enticing, complex nose. Then rich and dense in the mouth, with lovely acidity and pure floral flavors of orchard fruits and caramel. The very long finish is multilayered and suave. Much deeper, richer and more complex than the 2013 Pinot Gris Dirstelberg; the depth and power...

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.

Select robust reds from Rhône, fresh whites and sparkling wines from the Loire Valley. Or revel in the warmth of the Mediterranean coast, where sun-drenched vines produce fruity reds and refreshing rosés from Languedoc-Roussillon and Provence in the South of France.

Our selection of French wines has been curated from all corners of this wine loving country.
