French Red Wine

Quite simply the defining template for so much of the world's red wine production today. Cabernet sauvignon, pinot noir, syrah, cabernet Franc, merlot, malbec... all found their original and enduring expressions in France and continue to count among our preferred varietals. Few categories will offer such breadth in style, tradition and appeal as that of vin rouge français. Whether in the form of an ethereal, Grand Cru Beaujolais, the rich opulence of Pomerol or a peppery Côtes-du-Rhône, here is also where so many of the world's red wine drinkers begin their appreciation. We're therefore delighted to be offering these very fine, hand-picked options from some of France's best-loved appellations.
