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...

FRENCH WINE

The most widely planted variety of French wine 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 French wine varieties are Chardonnay and Sémillon.

WINE FROM FRANCE

From the full-bodied red Cabernet Sauvignons of Bordeaux and crisp white Sancerres of the Loire, to fine French sparkling wines from Champagne and beyond, start sampling our diverse French wines lists today.

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.
