For centuries, French wines have set standards to inspire winemakers around the world. No other country has France’s long history of fine wine production, which has helped define wine styles around the world.
How significant is France in the world of wine? The most popular international grape varieties, from Chardonnay to Merlot to Cabernet Sauvignon, are native to France. In many years France produces (and consumes!) more wine than any other country. Its production and export of fine wines is unmatched.
The ancient Greeks were the first to take advantage of France’s potential for wine production, as they planted vines in their colonies along the Mediterranean coastline more than 2,500 years ago.
92 Wilfred Wong: In the world of non-vintage brut, the Ayala Brut Majeur has been one of the world’s standard bearers of this prestigious category. Today, I really loved the wine better than I ever have before. Perhaps it was the moment or the day before Saint Valentine’s Day. This wine shines with elegance and complexity. Its intricate mix of tart apples, brisk minerality, and faint yeastiness prime it perfectly with seared scallops and a squeeze of fresh lime.
