A bit more on French Wine:
Getting into French wine is a bit baffling to the neophyte. Firstly, wines are labeled by region instead of grape variety. And, with over 330 regions (called “appellations”) it’s hard to know what’s what. Fortunately, there’s a better way.
Back out of France to the national level and you’ll see that the climate changes drastically from North to South. In the South, you’ll find a prevalence of bolder, fruitier red wines made with grapes like Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre.
As you move north (to cooler climates) the focus moves more to zesty white wines, sparkling wines and elegant reds. Think Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Champagne! So, next time you see an appellation listed on the bottle, figure out where it sits in the country, and that’s a big clue as to the style.
In this video, I select 12 wine appellations from all over the country that I think would give anyone a really good overview of the wonder that is French Wine. If you’d like to know my short list subscribe here → https://winefolly.com/subscribe/
