Explore the intricacies of French wine
The history and position of France in the world of good wine are exceptional. For many, the vinos of this region are a specific, unique type; not always the easiest to enjoy straight off the bat, but often the most satisfying for their truly remarkable traits.
This country produces more vino than any other country except for Italy, which sometimes wins the race for quantity. However, it is in the realm of taste that a quality label excels, setting the bar for other varietals and regions around the globe.
Due to its perfect temperate climate and varied landscape, this country can supply products of virtually any style. Its finest red Bordeaux, for example, sets the global standard for Cabernet Sauvignon. Meanwhile, thousands of Chardonnay vines planted around the world owe their existence to white Burgundy, just as Pinot Noir is derived from its red counterpart.
Champagne is the pillar of dry sparkling wine, regardless of where it comes from, and the Rhône Valley produces deep reds. Last but not least, the Loire is known for pinks and whites of varying sweetness and fizziness.
French vino vs. the New World
While the distinction between French and New World varieties is becoming increasingly blurry, there is an obvious difference in style between the two.
For instance, it is generally believed that the French do not have to “woo the drinker” with fruity flavours designed to be enjoyed as soon as they are bottled. Instead, they tend to produce vino for the medium and long term, in the restrained style that they have used for centuries on end. It’s this process and reputation that the country’s products continue to be a household staple the world over.
