Locations

France

Wine is being produced throughout France and has been done for over 2,500 years with certain Châteaux dating their history back to Roman times, around 6th Century BC. Ranking second in the world in per-capita consumption and first in total production quantity. More so than the overall quantity of wine is the quantity of truly great wines coming out of France makes the nation the envy of wine-making nations worldwide.

Two concepts pivotal to the higher end French wines, in particular, are the idea of 'terroir' and the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) system. Terroir refers to the way the geography, geology and climate find their way into the glass, telling a story of the origin of the wine. The AOC was set up in 1935 and has the primary goal of protecting the authenticity of the wines and the livelihoods of the producers. Appellation rules strictly define which varieties of grapes and winemaking practices are approved for classification in each of France's several hundred geographically defined appellations, which can cover entire regions, individual villages or in some cases, like in Burgundy even specific vineyards.

Classic wine regions in France include Champagne (home of Champagne), Burgundy (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay), Bordeaux (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot), Alsace (Aromatic varietals), Loire Valley (Chenin Blanc, Crémant) and the Rhône Valley (Syrah, Grenache Mourvedre)

The Bordeaux classification of 1855 is still in use, as is the Sauternes and Barsac Classification of the same year. Wines from certain regions can be bought En Primeur, which is when the wine is sold prior to it being bottled.

Provence

Located in the South of France, the Provence wine region boasts a classic Mediterranean climate, with warm, sunny summers and adequate rainfall following mild winters. The famed Mistral wind provides an important cooling influence here. The region has become virtually synonymous with now-ubiquitous pale-pink rosé winés. These utterly drinkable, food-friendly wines consist primarily of Grenache Noir and Cinsault, and the best expressions nicely balance fresh fruit, herbal notes, and acidity. Other red varieties here include Mourvèdre, Syrah, Carignan, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The region produces small amounts of white wine as well, from such varieties as Vermentino (the locals refer to it as Rolle) and Clairette. Provence has three primary appellations: Côtes de Provence, Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence, and Coteaux Varois en Provence.

Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence

The vineyards of Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence are the furthest west in Provence, France. The appellation area extends from the Durance River to the Mediterranean Sea, and from the Rhône Valley in the west to Sainte-Victoire Mountain in the east. The Mistral – the infamous cold, dry wind that blows in from the north – marks this area’s Mediterranean climate. Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence receives only roughly 550 to 680 mm of rain every year, which falls mainly in spring and autumn. The main red varieties here are Cinsault, Grenache, Counoise, Mouvèdre, and Syrah. The principal white variety is Rolle (or Vermentino).

Famed for its rosé wines, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence’s rosés are pale coloured – salmon-pink, peach, and lychee. On the nose, you’ll find floral and red-berry notes as well as citrus and yellow- or white-fleshed fruits. These wines boast an ample palate with great acidity, making them very approachable and thirst-quenching. Red wines from Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence can be robust and age-worthy, but you can also find easy-drinking, fruity, unoaked styles. The white wines are generally fresh and aromatic, much like the rosés.
