The French regions

If you have been reading this website, you could be forgiven for thinking that I am only interested in Italy – but that is far from the case. Here are the more substantial posts and pages on favourite French regions.

Champagne
Alsace
Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé
Burgundy: Chablis
Burgundy: Côte d’Or
Bordeaux
The Rhône, north and south 
  • Syrah spectacular – a memorable evening with Syrah from around the world but the highlights were from the Northern Rhône
  • Châteauneuf-du-Pape – world-famous, rich and ripe wines, what’s not to like? 
  • Tavel – a famous, old, rosé-only appellation in the Southern Rhône 
  • Vineyard worship – the second half of this pictorial journey deals with some of the great vineyards of the two halves of the Rhône
  • Rhône varieties, home and away – this does what it says on the ton!
