Taitinger Champagne
Provided by:

Champagne

For centuries, the site of coronation of French Kings and the oldest region of French wines
No white grape is ever used in the composition of a real Champagne wine, for it would bring a yellowish, shabby color.  The black grape, on the contrary, gives the wine its crystalline color. Madame de Pompadour, a favorite of king Louis the fifteenth, said: "Champagne makes woman more beautiful and… gives spirit to the men!"

Burgundy

Burgundy Wine
Provided by:

   More Than a Province, almost a state which represented a real headache for the kings of France.
In the 11th century, the monks were wine growers. They built low stone walls around the best plots of land, thereby leaving behind the famous "clos" (enclosed fields), which align the landscape of Burgundy.

It was said that the Dukes of Burgundy were the "Lords of the best wines of Christianity".

Beaujolais Wine
Provided by:

  Beaujolais

   Who knows that Beaujolais means “Beautiful Mountains”?
A little corner of France holding so many unknown treasures.
Legend has it that the giant Gargantua would have been behind the formation of some of these mountains; every time he found a rock in his shoe, he would throw it here or there, giving shape to the north Beaujolais landscape in the process.

   Bordeaux Region

Bordeaux Wine
Provided by:

   A Unique soil, a favorable climate, quality grapes and an exceptional know how, the secret of a subtle and delicious wine.
XVth century, Bordeaux wines didn’t keep well in oak barrels; once opened if they weren’t then consumed fast enough, they would become undrinkable. A proverb was derived from this unpleasant experience: "When the wine is drawn, it must be drunk".

The famous French author Montesquieu used to said of his beloved region: "The air, the grapes, the wine from the banks of the river Garonne and the good temper of the Gascons are excellent antidotes to melancholy".

Rhone Valley

"There is no place like Rhone."
Viticulture arrived in Southern France with the Greeks in the 4th century BC. But it was the Romans who really established the vineyards and reputation of the area using the Rhône as their highway through France (and planting a few vineyards along the way).

Story has it that the popes who took up their residence in Avignon (1309-1377) instead of their traditional home in Rome were fond of burgundy wines. It’s difficult to imagine that they did not enjoy some “Chateauneuf du Pape”, a delicious wine produced in their neighborhood.
