White wines
A brief history of Chardonnay

Chardonnay is a grape variety used for making white wine. It is a very popular grape variety because it makes it possible to produce great wines of all types: dry, syrupy, sparkling, etc.

It gives a wine with a very balanced structure between alcohol and acidity. Chardonnay is an extraordinary grape variety, because it expresses a very different personality from one terroir and from one region to another. In the northern regions, it gives a lively and elegant wine, while in the sunnier regions it gives a supple and balanced wine.

Chardonnay expresses an aromatic palette which is again incredibly varied depending on the terroir, ranging from aromas of flowers (hawthorn, acacia, etc.), fruits (pear, pineapple, mango, etc.), dried fruits (hazelnut, grilled almond, ...), ferments (butter, toast, brioche, ...), or even spices..

Chardonnay is a grape variety that is said to originate from Burgundy. It is also one of these favorite regions, although it is one of the most cultivated grape varieties in the world. It is indeed the only white grape variety in Burgundy, known in particular for its famous appellations (Chablis, Montrachet, etc.). Champagne is also a terroir of adoption of Chardonnay for the production of Champagne "blancs de blancs". In France, it is also found in the vineyards of the Jura, Savoie, Languedoc, in the South-West and the Loire.

Red wines
The Pinot noir

Pinot Noir is a grape variety used to make red wine.
It offers a fine and light texture, with generally a good balance between fresh acidity and fine tannins.
Pinot Noir is a grape variety found mainly in France. Pinot Noir is the emblematic grape variety of the red wines of Burgundy (unique variety in red). It is also found in Alsace and Champagne.
This grape variety is very sensitive to the terroirs and gives wines that can be very different from one estate to another.

Being a rather light grape variety with a balanced structure and a nice aromatic palette, Pinot Noir is generally vinified alone, without blending with other grape varieties. Due to the lightness offered by Pinot Noir, wines made with this grape variety can be drunk quite young, but can also (and often must) be kept for several years in the cellar. With a little time, they will gain in aromatic complexity.

Rosé wines
Wines from the South of France

Contrary to some legends, rosé wine does not come from the mixture of white wine and red wine, except in the particular case of Champagne. Rosé wine is made from red grapes, but the resulting juice only stays in contact with the skins for a very short time, which give the wine its color. Rosé wine requires a lot of know-how for its elaboration. There are three types of rosé

The term rosé wine appeared in the 1680s. But at the same time the demand for wine was moving towards a more colorful and more tannic wine. Red wine already existed. It was more for manual workers who needed strength to work. They will be called black or vermeil then red wines.
Clear wine will give way to red wine from the 18th century. The attack of phylloxera will also lead to the development of very colorful grape varieties. Rosé wine will only represent 10% of the wine market.
It is with the development of tourism to the south of France in the 20th century that the rosé wine market will develop again. And the beginning of the 21st century will see the development of a very high quality rosé.
