French wine facts

The diversity of French wine is due, in part, to the country's wide range of climates. Champagne has one of the coolest climates anywhere in the wine-growing world. Bordeaux has a maritime climate heavily influenced by the Atlantic ocean and the rivers that wind their way between its vineyards. Burgundy has a continental climate, with warm, dry summers and cold winters. Geology and topography play too important roles in the diversity of French wine. From the granite hills of Beaujolais to the chalky slopes of Chablis and the gravels of the Medoc the sites on which France's vineyards have been developed are at the heart of the concept of terroir. A region's terroir dictates the grape varieties used to produce its traditional wines. For example, Pinot Noir is closely associated with Burgundy. France's appellation system was created in the early 20th century and has since been imitated in many other countries. This system defines each wine region and its boundaries and imposes strict rules around winemaking practices.
