French Red Wines

Strong in all three of the classic red wine regions Bordeaux, Burgundy & Rhône Valley, we also always offer one of the best selections in the whole country of Languedoc-Roussillon reds, plus reds from Beaujolais, the Loire and south-west France, notably Madiran.

As a general rule, wines from northern France (e.g. the Loire) tend to be lighter and fresher than those made in the south.

The three classic red wine regions of France are: Bordeaux, home to the most famous wines on the planet, blends made of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, plus small quantities of Petit Verdot and Malbec; Burgundy, where the reds are all 100% Pinot Noir; and the Rhône Valley, which is divided into the north, where reds are from Syrah; and the south where reds are based on Grenache Noir.
