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

Produced from equal parts of old Pinot Noir and Gamay vines, there is an impressive level of fruit on the nose with a lovely touch of sweet spice and savouriness. The palate displays a good mix of red and dark berries supported by a good structure of fine tannins and refreshing acidity resulting in a surprisingly complex experience and a...

TASTING NOTES

An expressive and richly textured wine with deep plum and cassis aromas, the 2016 seems smoother and darker than the 2015. On the palate, succulent ripe fruits and a hint of spice on the finish mingle with wild herbs and lavender. This wine will be delicious in a few years. Drink from 2018.

The cuvée is characterized by hints of floral and exotic fruits. The 2014 vintage, less hot than the previous ones, coupled with a harvest made with no excess of maturity allow this wine to keep acidity and freshness necessary for enjoying its very aromatic and rich flavours.

As with the dry wines Le Mont seems a little more open and opulent than the Clos du Bourg. The nose has more expression and lift with delicate ginger notes and riper pear and quince. The palate is round and textured with a palpable sweetness but great grip and drive. Mineral and precise this is a fantastic example of what...

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.

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.
