Wine: Red Wines

Red wines hold a privilaged place in the heart of most wine lovers! The range of flavours in red wine is quite dramatic, depending on the varietal, region, appellation, cultivation method, vinification method, and breeding method. Merlot, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Grenache and Cabernet are among the most famous red grape varieties in France. All regions have their own specialities, with Bordeaux, Burgundy, Rhône Valley, Alsace, Languedoc-Roussillon and Savoy being the most popular wine regions in France. Not to forget the wines from the rest of the world who similarly produce world class red wines!
