Paris, France

Why is pinot noir from Burgundy so much more subtle than pinot noir from California?

What two main characteristics do the French look for in their wine?

What makes a gamay from Beaujolais such an excellent, less expensive alternative to ultra-pricey Burgundies like Romanée Conti?

Which French wine can literally age for over a century?

As long-time members of the Bonner Private Wine Partnership will know, we recently imported a few thousand bottles of wine from France.

Our club “sommelier,” retired winemaker Julien Miquel, took the opportunity to produce a two-part video crash course on French wines.

As a Bordeaux educated oenologist who has made wine at some of the greatest wineries in France, Julien knows a thing or two.

For those of you who haven’t seen the two-part course yet, we invite you check it out right now:

That’s all for this week... next week, we talk Champagne.
