Champagne Blend France Provence

The sparkling wines of Champagne have been revered by wine drinkers for hundreds of years, and even today they maintain their reputation for excellence of flavor and character, and are consistently associated with quality, decadence, and a cause for celebration. Their unique characteristics are partly due to the careful blending of a small number of selected grape varietals, most commonly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. These grapes, blended in fairly equal quantities, give the wines of Champagne their wonderful flavors and aromas, with the Pinot Noir offering length and backbone, and the Chardonnay varietal giving its acidity and dry, biscuity nature. It isn't unusual to sometimes see Champagne labeled as 'blanc de blanc', meaning it is made using only Chardonnay varietal grapes, or 'blanc de noir', which is made solely with Pinot Noir.

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.

The wines of Provence have proven themselves time and time again to be amongst the finest and most recognizable in the world. With over two and a half thousand years of wine making history, the region of Provence is one of the most ancient wine regions on earth, and one which is more successful and ancient than ever. Over the centuries, many different cultures and peoples made Provence their home, from the Romans to the Gauls, the Catalans and Greeks, making the wine culture of Provence a unique and fascinating one for lovers of interesting wines. Provence is most well known around the world for its rosé wines, most commonly made from the Mourvedre grape varietal, however, their red wines are once more gaining popularity due to their exciting fruit flavors and wonderfully herbal notes.
