To produce a short summary of French wine is tricky; France and wine are synonymous in the minds of passionate bon vivants. The French are passionate about their palates and their stomachs and, are possibly more proud of the fruits of their land than any other nation.
They are the world's largest wine producers, making 50-60 million hectolitres per year and have the second largest area of vineyards after Spain. France has a winemaking history dating back to the 6th century and pioneered many winemaking techniques and structure systems, such as the Méthode Champenoise. The concept of the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) system also began in France, whereby grape varieties and winemaking techniques are stipulated for each defined area, of which there are several hundred in France. Geographically France is blessed as a winemaking country, lying nestled between sea and ocean as well as having a mass of countries to the east, and possessing a rich variety of different soil types. The term terroir, which describes the personality of a wine created through the impact of the micro-climate, geography, and geology was coined in France. French wines are hugely diverse, with every imaginable style available - therefore the choice is never ending- and one can enjoy a glorious taste exploration. If Bordeaux is the father of French wine and Burgundy is the mother an, then the remaining regions could be considered their children - being reminiscent of their parents but with personalities of their own.
