Vinoble is proud to list a selection of fine French Wines Hong Kong. The French may not have invented wine, but they were arguably the first to truly perfect it and forge a tradition that has lasted centuries. Careful cultivation and record keeping by French monks resulted in native grapes being carefully chosen for the matching terroir, and each micro-climate studied to discover the perfect blend. France has given us Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon to name a few. France is the third largest producer of wine in the world, topping 40 million hl. The success of French wine has inspired others to grow French grapes in nearly every wine-making region in the world. Bordeaux is home to the most competitive wine trade in the world, with futures on vintages selling out several years before release. Given the longevity of the best Bordeaux, it comes as no surprise. Burgundy is synonymous with its native Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and the areas of Beaune, Chablis, Mersault, and many others are world famous. The Rhone valley makes celebrated Syrah in the North (St Joseph, Hermitage, Cote-Rotie), and fabulously rich, ripe blends in the South (Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes du Rhône). Alsace and Lorraine rest in the crossroads of Europe, and feature world-class Riesling. The Loire and Languedoc Rousillon regions produce great quantities rustic, affordable, and easy wines as well. France pioneered regulations to protect regional identity in the 1930s. The highest level is AOC, followed by Vin de Pays, and Vine de Table. There are approximately 472 AOC wines produced in France today. To many around the world, French Wine remains king.
