How To Choose Wine For Events

French Wine Gifts

By any measure,  France  is the greatest  wine -producing country in the world.   France  was the first nation to implement a system of legislation that codified viticultural practices and protected geographical designations of origin, and its laws served as a model for the rest of the winegrowing world.

France  is also the original home of the world’s most famous  wine  grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Grenache, and Syrah for red  wines , alongside Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Riesling for whites.

No other country produces such a large volume of fine  wine , and at Personal  Wine , we’ve tasted through hundreds of bottles to bring you the very best  wine  gifts that  France  has to offer:

The  Wine : Pol Roger Brut Réserve NV

Region: Champagne

Pol Roger Brut Réserve NVThe Champagne region of north-central  France  is home to the world’s greatest sparkling  wine , a vinous embodiment of luxury, celebration, and success.  With a history that dates back to 1849, Pol Roger is one of the great family-owned estates of Champagne, famous for its popularity among British royalty.  A classic blend of equal parts Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier, Pol Roger’s iconic Brut Réserve slumbers in chalk caves for over four years prior to release, far exceeding the minimum requirements of the appellation.

In addition, each and every bottle of Pol Roger Brut Réserve is riddled by hand, an extremely labor-intensive method that is rarely employed for  wines  at this price point.  The result is a non-vintage Champagne that over delivers on all fronts, making this the perfect  wine  gift for business closings, bridal showers, anniversaries, or any cause for celebration.

The  Wine : Chateau d’Esclans Whispering Angel Cotes de Provence Rose 2017

Region: Provence

Chateau d’Esclans Whispering Angel Cotes de Provence Rose 2017The sun-drenched region of Provence is the spiritual homeland of rosé in  France .  Dry, pale-hued rosé accounts for over 75% of the region’s total production, and every summer, droves of tourists flock to its shores to quaff the  wine  with local fare like bouillabaisse and salade niçoise.  Situated on a plateau roughly 25 kilometers north of the Mediterranean coast, Chateau d’Esclans rose to international fame in 2006 with the release of Garrus, a luxury cuveé sourced from 80-year-old vines that many critics have declared to be the world’s best rosé.

That said, the producer is better known for the Whispering Angel, a Grenache-based rosé with a massive international following that is equally at home in fine dining restaurants as it is in beachfront cabanas.  This bright and refreshing  wine  offers flavors of fresh citrus and melon, and will make a fashionable  wine  gift for the bon vivant in your life.

The  Wine : Château Simard Saint-Émilion Grand Cru 2010

Region: Bordeaux

Château Simard Saint-Émilion Grand Cru 2010

Bordeaux is one of  France ’s most important fine  wine  regions and the original home of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc.  Tracing its origins back to the 17th Century, Château Simard is located near the picturesque village of Saint-Émilion, a UNESCO World Heritage site that is home to some of the region’s most prestigious estates.  Surrounded on all sides by first growth vineyards, Chateau Simard’s 40-hectare hillside property is planted to old vine Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and the entirety of their production is dedicated to a single  wine  that is aged to perfection prior to release.

Quintessentially Saint-Emilion in style, the 2010 Chateau Simard leaps from the glass with gorgeous aromas of fresh plum, black cherry, tobacco, and spices. Medium-bodied and elegant, this classically styled claret is extremely versatile at the table and will make a stately  wine  gift.
