The process of wine production in France is alien to many; not many people understand it at the very least. UKV PLC, a celebrated European wine company, tries to break the process down into small bits that wine lovers can understand.
UKV PLC advises that for beginners the fundamental thing to know about French wine is the wine appellation system in the country. According to UKV PLC, the Appellation d’origine controlee is the dominant wines appellation system in France, which categorizes wines by their places of origin. Apparently, the type of wine in France is dependent on the kind of soil, altitude, climate, and topography in its place of origin. Some regions are known to produce the best wines in France. Some of these areas include Burgundy, Bordeaux, and Champagne.
Different Wine Production Regions in France
UKV PLC analyzed the different wines from these regions. Côte de Beaune Chardonnay is the most popular wine that is produced in Burgundy. Located in eastern France, the region has a history of the best vineyards and winemakers in France. Burgundy also produces white and red wines. Bordeaux, on the other hand, is a region known mostly for exporting wine. Red wines are leading in the area, with its vineyards specializing in grapes production. As for the northeastern region of Champagne, most winemakers largely employ the double-fermentation production technique due to the high altitude in the region.
