French wines

Nearly anywhere wine is produced, France is considered the standard. Even though this has started to shift over the last decades, a Tuscan winemaker will still strive for a merlot that will feel like a famous Pomerol, and a winemaker from South Africa would want to create a pinot noir reminiscent of a Côte de Nuits grand cru.

France has a beautiful combination of the right soil with very specific terroir, and a climate that is perfectly fit for cultivating the great varietals. Add to that the vast know-how accumulated for centuries, the only conclusion to draw is that here are the ideal circumstances for creating the best wines in the world.

The best French wines

Even though around the world wines are made that, at the very least, measure up to the French wines, the country is still viewed as the standard. Wines from the Bordeaux, with its famous appellations Pomerol, Saint Emilion, Pauillac, Margaux, and Graves, and in a similar way Burgundy with its Côtes de Beaune and Côte de Nuits, as well as the great wines from the Rhone enjoy world-wide renown. On the other hand, the remarkable wines from the Loire, the Alsace and the Provence are not to be underestimated either.
