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

Very elegant, complex and attractive on the nose with notes of stone fruit, apricots and acacia honey with delicate floral characters in the background and a hint of spice. The palate is wonderfully harmonious and refined with beautifully integrated, ripe stone fruit flavours and a refreshing, persistent acidity which runs energetically through to the finish.

TASTING NOTES

Produced from a south facing parcel at the extreme south of Les Vaillons, this unique wine is vinified in a concrete egg to give an additional layer of complexity. The shape of the egg creates a circulating effect for the lees while the porosity of the surface allows for micro-oxidation like a barrique but without any woody characters. The beautifully...

Beautifully pure, floral nose. On the palate a racy, energetic feel with nuances of stone fruit, acacia, brioche and underlying minerality. Lovely purity and vitality run like a vein through the wine, which has a long, crisp, slightly nutty finish. Exemplary Blanc de Blancs and great apéritif style.

Deliciously precise with high toned citrus fruit providing thrilling...

50% pinot meunier, 40% pinot noir, 10% chardonnay from Cumières, this is the classic non-vintage expression of Geoffroy’s house style.   The rich fig and red apple fruits create a compelling contrast with crisp acidity and tight grapefruit and lemon notes.  Three years on lees makes for generous maturity, reinforcing honey and fruit cake spice and a deliciously creamy texture.  Wonderful,...

TASTING NOTES

A lovely light salmon pink. The nose is fresh and juicy with redcurrant and cranberry fruit. A lively limey acidity complements the red fruit beautifully and provides a perfect balance with the creamier, caramel and honey notes on the long finish. With a hint of white flowers and a wonderfully fine mousse this is very appealing and utterly delicious.
