Flagship Wines offers an extensive range of French Wines that reflect the diversity of wines produced in this country that represent long established wine making traditions from regions such as Burgundy and Bordeaux and contemporary wine making in the South West in areas like Languedoc Roussillon.
French wines are still the benchmark for wine making around the world despite the plethora of wines available from the Southern Hemisphere. Arguably the best chardonnays and Pinot Noirs are made in Burgundy, Bordeaux blends, Lore Sauvignons and Rhone Syrahs also mark the way similar wines are made around the world.
Flagship Wines offers wines from all the major regions and many of the lesser known ones too that are making delicious wines:
Alsace: despite the strong German traditions of the region the wines are mostly dry and fruity from a range of mainly white grape varieties.
Bordeaux: the Bordeaux blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc make very balanced and elegant wines that often need time in cask to show their colours and will age well.
Burgundy: the world’s best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir based wines are made here with aging potential too.
Chablis: fabulous minerally Chardonnays are the hallmark of this region
Champagne: fantastic traditional wines with a worldwide reputation
Loire: this is Sauvignon Blanc’s natural home and a diversity of wine styles emerge from this region’s appellations together with the joys of Chenin Blancs range from dry to luscious dessert wines.
Rhone Valley: superb Syrahs from the north of the appellation with great blends such as Chateauneuf du Pape in the south.
