All about French wine
Discover wines from France
Perhaps the most popular and well-known wines are varieties of French wine. Even if you're new to the world of wine, know at least a handful of names associated with French producers. Chardonnay? Cabernet? Merlot? All French and all delicious. Look at some of the common varieties from France so you have a better idea of what's available.
The red varieties
When you think of French red wine, the obvious answers that come to mind include cabernet sauvignon and merlot. These reds come from the Bordeaux region in France. There are also many more options, such as the light pinot noir with fruity flavors and richer undertones of vanilla and tobacco. If you want a darker red, try a syrah with an herby and fruity flavor that goes well with grilled foods.
The white varieties
Sauvignon blanc is a popular white wine from France. It has an herbal flavor with honeydew, thyme and lime peel. A lesser-known wine is muscadet from the Loire Valley. This French wine has a dry taste with slight hints of pear and apple that go well with seafood. Try a riesling from Alsace with refreshing and fruity flavors that is ideal to have with seafood or spicy foods like Pad Thai.
The sparkling varieties
The most well-known sparkling wine is Champagne from the Champagne region in France. Did you know there are other varieties outside of the traditional Champagne? For example, Crémant d'Alsace is a light and fruity sparkling blend from the Alsace region and pairs well with Moroccan food.
Wines by region
Not every French wine is equal. Why? Each region has a unique climate and landscape for growing grapes, from cool and temperate to coastal and Mediterranean. Thus, each region has unique wines that range from red, white, sparkling and even rosé. So, whether you want a red that goes well with meat for your barbecue party or a white wine that pairs with the risotto you made, there's a wine from France that matches your needs.
