What Makes French Wine So Great?

Nov 24, 2019

(Frenchly) - More than 50 countries now produce quality wines that can compete with French wines. However, France is still considered the best winemaker in the world thanks to its status as a mecca of vins de terroir, affected by more than two thousand years of history.

Terroir is the land, the climate, the soil, every natural feature of the land in a particular location. Consider, for example, the vineyards of Burgundy, the diversity of these microterroirs, which are called climates, and the incredible nuances created in pinot noir grapes alone; we have to think of French wine as not only an alcoholic beverage, but a true element of culture.
