France Alsace Champagne Jura End Bin Wines Wine

Year in, year out, France enjoys its prestigious reputation as the producer of the finest wines in the world. With a wine making history which spans several thousand years and owes its expertise to the Romans, it comes as little surprise that this most highly esteemed of the Old World wine countries continues to impress and enchant both novices and experts to this day. Despite the rise in quality of wines from neighboring European countries, not to mention the New World, the French wine industry continues to boom, with up to eight billion bottles being produced in recent years. However, France prides itself on always putting quality before quantity, and the wide range in fine produce is a testament to the dedication and knowledge of the wineries across the country. Indeed, from rich and complex reds to light and aromatic white wines, French wines are as varied and interesting as they are enjoyable to drink, making this country a firm favorite for wine lovers across the globe.

Alsace has to be one of the most fascinating regions of France, with a history which stretches back millennia, and demonstrates perfectly the kind of blended culture that can arise from being located on the border between two enormously important, yet very different countries. Indeed, being on the border between France and Germany has resulted in Alsatian wines being something of a mix between the wines of these two countries. Riesling varietal grapes are grown in enormous quantities here, and display all of their crisp, dry complexity perfectly in the famous wines of Alsace. Alongside this typically Germanic wine, Alsatian vintners also produce plenty of Pinot Noir, Gewurztraminer, Muscat and Sauvignon Vert wines, all of which are superb when it comes to expressing the finer features of the wonderful Alsatian terroir.

The beautiful rolling hillsides of the Champagne region of France have, for hundreds of years, been producing many of the world's most famous wines. The sparkling white wines to come out of Champagne's prestigious wineries have conquered the world, and are drank in celebration across the globe. The vast majority of the region is under vine, and grows predominantly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grape varietals, which are usually blended together by master wine-makers in order to make their recognizable and widely loved produce. The north-easterly region of Champagne has a relatively cool climate, and quite a lot of rainfall, making it far from ideal for ripening grapes. However, the presence of heavily forested areas in the region helps maintain a balanced temperature, and the generations of expertise the wineries hold clearly produces excellent results in spite of the climatic problems.

The Isle of Jura is widely regarded as one of Scotland’s last true wildernesses - a wild and rugged place, found in the Southern Hebrides and home to just two hundred inhabitants and several thousand deer. It has one pub, one road, and despite being only sixty kilometers from the major metropolitan center of Glasgow on the mainland, it takes some time to get there. Which may help to explain why Jura whisky is so special - it really is a whisky which has evolved by itself, in isolation from the hustle and bustle of the world, and is widely regarded as one of Scotland’s finest single malts.

Jura whisky almost became something purely of the past. There was a historic distillery on the island since 1810, but due to a lack of interest in quality single malts in the late 19th century and early 20th century - thanks to the rise in lower quality, blended grain whiskies which were taking over the mainland - it fell into ruin. In 1963, the island’s only distillery was re-opened, and with the support of the island’s community, it began working again and aimed to create unique and characterful whiskies which would reflect the independent spirit of this tiny, wind-battered land.
