Any French sommelier will insist that the region where wine gets produced is as important as the kind of grape being used to produce it. This is because even though wonderful wines are being produced all across France, but there are a few notable regions that any novice must be well aware of.
UKV PLC considers one of these regions to be Burgundy. This is a place where both red and white wine is produced. In Burgundy, the Reds are the Pinot Noir variety. This has a complex and earthy note. In the case of Burgundy whites, Chardonnay grapes are made use of. These have mineral as well as light fruit flavor. UKV PLC As talks about this eastern region as it has been cultivated for making wine for many centuries now. Today Burgundy is enjoying a legendary reputation for these vineyards. The local wines like Côte de Beaune Chardonnay will always demand a high price.
Another region suggested by UKV PLC is Bordeaux. It is located on the Atlantic coast. This region has been transporting wines to a number of foreign countries since centuries. The vineyards of Bordeaux are producing medium-body reds. These are blended from different grapes. Hence based on the appellation, there may be Cabernet Sauvignon, or Malbec, or Cabernet Franc or even Merlot in a bottle of Bordeaux. All these can be supplied by UKV PLC wines. Bordeaux is a large region. There are nearly 10,000 producers here. The local wines from here can be of any range.
