Corkbuzz Online | Year in Review: Guide to the Greatest French Vintages

France’s reputation as the world leader in fine wine is earned because French winemakers have spent centuries cultivating the grapevine and paying attention to the minute differences among wines made from various plots of land. France remains one of the top wine producers, with wines of every style and quality level coming from hundreds of unique appellations across the country.

Whether a novice or seasoned wine collector, knowing a little bit about the vintage, or weather conditions of a specific year in each region can ensure you're purchasing the best wines for your palate.

Perhaps you love the wines of Alsace and want to know if Pinot Gris or Riesling did better in a specific year. Maybe you're building a collection and you want to ensure your white & red Burgundies come from vintages that will age gracefully in the cellar. You might want to buy a gift, a bottle of wine from a specific year to commemorate an anniversary or event. How can you ensure you'll get the top quality and the most bang for your buck?

In this fun class, we'll cover the major wine regions of France and their best (and occasionally worst) vintages. Expect to learn about the growing conditions in Champagne, Burgundy, Alsace, Bordeaux, and Loire so you can confidently navigated that magnum opus of a wine list at your favorite restaurant.
