French Wine: France was the first country Wines Direct sourced wines from, almost 25 years ago. Today French wine continues to surprise us with its diversity and, more recently, its value.
As a wine region, it continues to set the benchmark for aspiring winemakers around the world. Don’t let the impenetrable labels put you off. Almost every variety you’ve heard of was specialised here first.
Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reach their lofty heights in Burgundy; Sauvignon Blanc is the mainstay of the Loire Valley; Shiraz and Grenache love the sun of the Rhône Valley and Languedoc; and, of course, the great grapes behind red Bordeaux, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. They’re all here for you to peruse. Bon recherche!
