French Wine Discoveries

French Wine

The French Wine Discoveries Tasting, organised by Wine 4 Trade, took place on January 14th at London's Tobacco Dock. With no heating, it was a rather cold day of tasting, but this didn't spoil the enjoyment of discovering some beautiful wines from across La Manche. Already in its 12th year, this annual trade show, devoted to French fine wine producers, showcases the huge variety of wine styles that France offers. Most companies represented were seeking UK representation, including many small wine producers driven by their passion and the unique terroir of their particular regions. With over 120 exhibitors, there was plenty of choice, so here is my selection of highlights (in no particular order) :-
