Viticulture in France dates to Roman times, and evidence of this heritage can be found all across the country. Until 2015, it was the world's top wine producing country in terms of volume, and while Italy has since claimed that spot, France remains the world's most important wine producing country in terms of quality and reptutation. Nowhere else can you find a greater concentration of astounding wines in such a wide variety of styles. Quality is driven by the official AOC geographic designation system, which outlines strict rules defining the production and quality of each region's wines, a system that has been imitated and employed throughout most of the world's other winegrowing countries. France is indeed original in this regard, with individual vineyard names, production rules, and property records dating back ten centuries or more in some cases.

The country's stylistic diversity and quality are also due to France's various micro-climates and geographic characteristics. Its coolest, most northerly region, Champagne, is the source of the finest examples of sparkling wine anywhere, and the long and winding Loire Valley is renowned for its steely, mineral-driven Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc. Just south and east of there, the gentle slopes and continental climate of Burgundy produce not only the world's best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but arguably the world's best wines, period. The southwestern, maritime region of Bordeaux is one of the world's largest, geographically speaking, and its reputation for epic wines is second to none. The region's top Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot-based wines are among the most ageworthy and expensive bottlings on the market. Along the southern coast, the hot, Mediterranean climates of Languedoc-Roussillon, Rhône, and Provence produce big, opulent Grenache and Syrah-based wines, as well as the world's most famous rosés. Truly, France stands unmatched in the world of wine.

Vogue Musigny (mise Drouhin) 1952  (#332350)

Pinot Noir from Chambolle-Musigny, Côte de Nuits, Burgundy, France

[ 96 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): (from a magnum identified as > 0247 with <5 cm of ullage). Wow, what a stunning and positively ethereal nose with everything that a serendipitous combination of great vintage, terroir and bottle age can create, including spice, earth, oriental tea, game and earth yet such descriptors don't begin to capture the sheer breadth of aromatic expression here. The supple, intense, indeed even robust and muscular flavors are delicious and the sap completely coats the mouth on the velvety finish. The flavor profile is not necessarily elegant as the structure is almost rustic yet the nose is so fine that it makes one overlook such nits. In short, the nose is perfection with flavors that are impressive but not quite at the same level. While there is no improvement to be had, from this format the wine will hold for another 30 years. Another magnum recently tasted was not quite as good but it was certainly close and yet another was equally spectacular. Drink: Now.
