Red wine: the unconditional choice of oenophiles

The remarkable diversity of red wines in France

France, country of good wine and gastronomy, naturally offers an immense choice of red wines, whether in the supermarket or at a wine merchant, from table wine to prestige wines, in going through the great vintages, etc.

It is no coincidence that red wine is the traditional wine, the most popular and the most appreciated by oenophiles.

French geographical and cultural diversity is reflected in its wines. Thus, each wine-growing region and each terroir develops its own characteristics, whether in terms of its structure, its acidity content or its tannins.

These different types of red wines offer unique flavours: the sweetness of Malbec from La Malepère, the finesse and elegance of a Pinot Noir from the Haute Vallée de l'Aude, the roundness and generosity of a Languedoc wine like a Pic Saint Loup, a Minervois or a Saint-Chinian, the power and blackness of the color of a Minervois La Livinière, ...

Gérard Bertrand, winemaker and entrepreneur specializing in wines from the south of France, and more specifically Languedoc-Roussillon wines, has developed over time a real know-how in the design of organic red wine quality, from environmentally friendly crops.

With what to accompany a red wine?

Red wine, due to its wide variety and large offer, can be enjoyed as much on its own as an aperitif or during a meal.

If, historically, and in popular belief, red wine is made to accompany mainly red meats (beef, mutton, duck, game, etc.) and cheese (Roquefort, Comté, goat cheese, etc.) which is completely true even if very simplistic as the possibilities of accompaniment are numerous.

The different grape varieties, terroirs and serving temperatures make it possible to pair the best red wines with almost any dish.

Do you still think that red wine and fish don't go well together? Taste a red wine with very little tannin like this bottle of Pinot Noir from Domaine de l'Aigle, and accompany it with red mullet, you will be surprised!

With a slightly stronger fish, like a slice of tuna, you can try a slightly more robust wine, like a Minervois.

Also very popular to start a meal, a tannic red wine will go perfectly as an appetizer with a varied salad seasoned with a vinaigrette sauce, for example.

As you will have understood, all combinations are possible with red wine.All you have to do is choose the right cuvée and enjoy the pleasure offered by tasting a good bottle of wine
