France is the leading contender in the title for the world’s finest wine nation. Its first vines were planted long before the country was known as France – pre-dating the arrival of Greeks and Romans. Today, it boasts an impressive 360-something appellations from Champagne in the cool north to Roussillon in the sultry south, embracing every wine style imaginable at every price point.
Home to Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne, France’s best wines are the benchmark for aspiring wine producers around the world: New World Cabernet producers look to Bordeaux’s best for their inspiration and every Pinot Noir producer hopes to reach the heights of the Côte d’Or while sparkling winemakers try to emulate the harmony of the best Champagnes by studying the methods that have been used in the vineyards and cellars for centuries.
