There are just so many different types of French wine, and given the climatic and geological differences between different French regions, this is hardly surprising. Most wine growing areas produce a mix of reds, whites and rosés, and maybe some sparkling wines too; but generally speaking the more northerly wine areas, Loire, Jura, Alsace, are famed for their whites, while the southern vineyards – Bordeaux, Languedoc, Côtes du Rhône, are best known for their reds.

Burgundy is famed for its reds and its whites, while Provence and the lower Loire are well known for their rosés. Sparkling wines are produced in Champagne, of course, but also in Burgundy, Alsace, the Jura, the Loire and the Languedoc. Apart from in champagne, they are called by the names mousseux or crémant.
