Starting from the North-West of France, the Loire Valley stretches for a thousand kilometres following the Loire river, where with its tributaries form a wine region known worldwide for its Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc. Just on its right, we find Chablis, the northern tip of Burgundy. Its cool climate produces beautiful Chardonnays with high acidity and a characteristic flinty notes. Continuing south of Burgundy, on the East of France, lies Beaujolais. Devoted to Gamay-based reds, it includes 10 Crus which produce age-worthy wines of exceptional quality. Keeping on going to the east of Bordeaux, in the South-West of France, we reach Cahors. Here the most widely planted grape is Malbec. Down to the Languedoc-Roussillon. This historical coastal region extends from Provence to the Pyrenées Mountains and the border with Spain. With warm Mediterranean climate, mild winters and low rainfall, the grapes find ideal conditions for growing.
