    Meursault “Perrieres” – 2015 – Domaine Yves Boyer-Martenot

    Label: Perfect
    Caps: Perfect
    Level: 0,6 cm
    Color: Perfect

    The vines and soil of Yves Boyer-Martenot give the wine its great quality which is why it is so important to manage them with both respect and care. To ensure that the wine produced is of high quality, traditional methods are used involving little or no product,soil cultivation, crop care, green harvest, and hand picking. Using these old fashioned methods and less machinery allows for our wines to develop naturally. The wine production and aging process is done in 100% oak barrels (1/3 new oak each year) over 12 months, where once a week the wine is stirred or refilled if necessary. In June each appellation is put in a tank for two months ready to be filtered and bottled by us.

    Château Giscours – 2000 – Margaux

    Label: Perfect
    Caps: Perfect
    Level: Very top shoulder
    Color: Perfect

    Tasted vertically by Château Giscours, Château Giscours 2000 is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc collected between 25 September and 7 October. The bouquet is clearly in a different league than the two previous vintages: aromas of red plum, mulberry and cedar that spread generously from the glass. There is something a little more exotic about these aromas, with hints of stewed apricots in the background. On the palate it is medium-bodied with fine tannins and cedar-infused black fruit with hints of black truffle towards the finish.

French wine is produced throughout France, in quantities of between 50 and 60 million hectoliters per year, or 7–8 billion bottles. France is one of the largest wine producers in the world, along with the Italian, Spanish and American wine regions. French wine traces its history back to the 6th century BC, with many French regions dating their wine history to Roman times. The wines produced range from expensive wines sold internationally to modest wines usually only seen in France, such as Margnat wines during the postwar period.
Two central concepts for the best French wines are the notion of terroir, which links the style of wines to the places where the grapes are grown and the wine is produced, and the Appellation d’origine contrôlée (AOC) system, replaced by the Appellation d ‘Origine Protégée (AOP) in 2012. Appellation rules strictly define which grape varieties and winemaking practices are approved for classification in each of France’s hundreds of geographically defined appellations, which may cover regions, villages or vineyards.
France is the source of many grape varieties (such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot noir, Sauvignon blanc, Syrah) that are now planted all over the world, as well as wine making practices and styles of wine that have been adopted in other countries productions. Although some producers have benefited in recent years from rising prices and increased demand for some of the prestigious wines of Burgundy and Bordeaux, the French wine industry has seen a decline in domestic consumption and, internationally, has had to compete with many new world wines.
