This year marks the first appearance of a Savoyard Chignin Bergeron (and indeed any wine from Savoie) in a top 50 Best In Show selection, and a welcome one for this unique style of Roussanne. It’s mountain Roussanne -- but it’s also sun-trap Roussanne; the protected sites of this appellation mean that this wine is in fact a little higher in alcohol than any of our five Chardonnays. The nose charms with honeysuckle and nougatine, while the palate charms, too, with a cascade of honeyed almond flavours. Compare it with Roussanne from the Rhone, though, and you’ll also see a dancing mountain freshness apparent in the wine, and a tender, apricot-like acidity which brings ample lift and swirl. (Best in Show, 2021)

It is widely understood and accepted that the finest wines in the world come out of France. Whether you are drinking a vintage bottle from one of the famed Grand Cru wineries of Bordeaux - such as Chateau Margaux or Chateau Lafite-Rothschild - or a more simple and affordable bottle from one of the lesser known appellations in Burgundy, the likelihood is that the wine is packed full of intense and interesting flavors, and has a fine, balanced structure typical of almost all French produce. This reputation for excellence is taken extremely serious by the French, with dozens of regularly updated laws and regulations ensuring the quality and accurate labeling of wines. Such dedication and passion for fine wine, representative of the region in which it is produced, means customers can be assured that when they buy a bottle from France, they are buying something almost certain to please and delight.
