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

The Haut Lieu Sec opens with inviting aromas of yellow pear-skin, hints of preserved lemon and green herbs, with a white flower fragrance. This cool freshness follows onto the palate, giving way to yellow plum and crunchy green apple alongside slate and chalk elements. A bright, crisp and very elegant Haut Lieu Sec.

This wine has spent three years in barrel under a layer of flor protecting it from oxidation and giving a yeasty, pungent and almost spicy character to the wine. Rich and complex with defining salinity and minerality.
