Recognised to be amongst the best red wines in France, Burgundy red wines have certain common features. Colour is rich and turns to ruby with ageing. The bouquet is fruity (strawberry, cherry, blackcurrant…) and peppery. Taste wise, red wines from Burgundy are very lively, structured and round; supple tannins join the racy structure into a balanced result.
The French wine region of Bordeaux benefits from a vast territory expressing a great diversity of soils, climates and grape varieties. Bordeaux red wines offer a palette of infinite hues and combine their virtues in many different ways. As different as they are, they often have in common an emphasis on the expression of the fruit; a pleasant, convivial wine.
Rhone Valley is mostly famous for its red wines; common red grape varieties in the area are Shiraz and Grenache. Red wines from this region are generally full-bodied, having in common a fine and elegant tannic structure, which requires a few years of ageing to refine. Nose is very seductive, with aromas of violets, cocoa, liquorice, red fruits and pepper.
