France – Philosophy in a bottle

According to French philosophy, wine should be an expression of the soil and climate. They use the word “terroir” to describe this. Terroir makes every wine different, and many especially good. French wine is regarded worldwide as an expression of cultural perfection. The French believe that humans are responsible for the quality of the berries, the vine variety for their character, and nature for the quantity. This philosophy can be expressed succinctly as: “the truth is the vineyard, not the man.”

Regions

Bordeaux

Bordeaux: high prestige, high quality

With a total area of around 115,000 hectares, Bordeaux may not be France’s largest wine-growing region, but it is certainly its most prestigious. The range of wines produced here today is enormous: ranging from red everyday wines with a great relationship between price and quality to exclusive, and accordingly expensive, premier crus. Elegant white wines and noble sweet specialties round out the spectrum.

Subregions

Pauillac

Pauillac: Aristocratic crus

No appellation embodies the noble Bordeaux virtues on such a fine, almost majestic level as Pauillac, the peninsula resting in the Médoc. With Lafite-Rothschild, Latour and Mouton-Rothschild, it is also home to the majority of the five premier crus. The grandeur of Pauillac crus is quite clearly based on the Cabernet Sauvignon variety, which, with a share of over 70 percent, certainly dominates in assemblages, and also lends the wines excellent aging potential.
