French Wine Making

Wine making in France is not only a very economically viable activity but is also considered to be no less than any form of art. It is often referred to as an expression of one’s creativity and the maker is literally considered to be an artist.

Champagne Truffles

The first solid chocolate bar is believed to have been produced and put on sale in 1847 by Fry & Sons of Bristol, England. It was in 1875 that a Swiss manufacturer, Daniel Peters, discovered how to blend chocolate with powdered milk. He came up with the world’s first milk chocolate, the precursor to the several dainty and delicious varieties that we relish now.

French Wine Vines

French wine vines and the grapes that grown on them are extremely important in determining the kind of wine which will be produced. There are two grape varieties, red grapes and white grapes. The red grapes are Cabernet franc, Cabernet sauvignon, Carignan, Cinsault, Gamay, Grenache, Merlot, Mourvedre, Pinot noir and Syrah. Cabernet franc is quite appreciated as any soil can be used to cultivate it. Its wines include Pomerol and Saumur. Cabernet Sauvignon produces wines like Graves and Bergerac. Carignan is present in the south of France and its wines include Cotes du Roussillon and Saint Chinian. Cinsault is a hill side grape variety and some of its wines are Coteaux du Languedoc and Cotes du Ventoux. Gamay produces Beaujolais and Touraine wine. Grenache is used for wines like Cotes de Provence. Merlot is involved in making Pomerol and Cahors. Mourvedre includes wines such as Bandol and Gigondas. Pinot noir is used for making some of the finest wines namely, Pommard and Clos Vougeot whereas Syrah is used for Hermitage wines.

Champagne Ratings

Champagne possesses a unique taste and structure that springs from the region’s chalky soils. Sparkling-wine producers throughout the rest of the world from Spain, Italy, Australia and America have tried to make wine that tastes exactly like champagne, but experts say it does not taste the same. It is this difference that accounts for the substantial price gap between champagne and comparable sparkling wines from other parts of the world.
