We all LIKE WHAT WE LIKE!

However, there are certain French Wines known as GREAT!

Which are you going to include?

There are many lists online!

I have my own list in progress!

I begin with SALON CHAMPAGNE 1996!

Have I tasted it?  YES I HAVE!

YOU MUST!

I remember also when the SALON 1999 was launched in London, England in 2011.....at a fish bistro with Haddock and potato chips!

I was told that I must taste it again, in 2050.........!!!  HAHA!!!!

There are so many beautiful French wines it would be difficult to know where to start with any list of those one must taste

True, Duncan 906!

Should I do THE DESERT ISLAND DISC CONCEPT?  HAHA!!!

 

If you were left on a DESERT ISLAND and you were told, that you can order a few French Wines and accompanying food, if you so desire, which FRENCH WINES WOULD YOU ASK FOR?

The thing about French wine,to borrow a sporting or military term is that there is so much strength in depth on the team. It is true that the classed growths and grand crus are lovely wines but there are also the 'petit chateau' and the less fashionable and obscure appellations that would also grace any table.For example;I have just finished writing my review of a Chateau Carbonneau from the Sainte-Foy-Bordeaux appellation which was an exquisite claret deserving of four and a half snooth glasses.I also gave four and a half glasses to a gamay  by Henri de Villars from the Coteaux du Lyonnais.I gave five glasses to a Marcillac from Domaine du Cros

AMOUR - I went out and bought a bottle of this just so I could show what it is:

Don't know this matters to you or not but after I got home something went off in brain and checked out March edition of WS and they gave an 89 and decent write up.  Said drinkable to 2026 - not bad for a $13 bottle of wine...if it's true.
