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.

The most widely planted variety is Carignan, with other significant red varieties being Grenache, Merlot, Cinsaut and Cabernet Sauvignon. Ugni Blanc dominates the white grape plantings as the main variety used in the production of Cognac. The other principal white varieties are Chardonnay and Sémillon.

Apple, lemon, huge intensity, acidity provides a substantial backbone for the wine and the fruit is very concentrated. The minerality is superb and dominates on a lengthy finish. The energy in this wine is incredible; it is very harmonious.

TASTING NOTES

Purity, bright vibrancy and focused definition belie this Champagne’s age.  This is beautifully crafted, seamless blend of apple and fig, undercut by lemon and pink grapefruit.  It has a brilliant brushstroke of chalky minerals which linger on the finish.  For something so delicate and nuanced, this has a remarkable character which has benefitted from its magnum bottling.

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...
