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 top dry cuvée for many Huet fans from the Clos next to Vouvray's cemetery. It exhibits a very pure and lightly perfumed apple and pear aroma.  The palate has a saline backbone which adds tension and focus to a seriously classy wine.  There is an almost electrical current running through it as it crackles with minerals.  The finish is...

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.
