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.

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. From Champagne in the north, whose cooler climate necessitates labour intensive processes to produce their renowned sparkling wines, to Bordeaux in the west, home to around 10,000 French wine producers. 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.
