Wine labeling should be an easy way of recognizing the best possible wine for either a novice or an experienced wine enthusiast; however, French wines often differ from their rivals in other parts of the world in terms of labeling and can make it a little more difficult for any person to make the most of their wine choices without the help of UKV PLC wine merchants. In most wine producing regions the label tends to refer mostly to the variety of grape used in production and the year produced, but UKV PLC explains French wine labels often highlight the region of production in terms of the terroir theory.
Terroir is a popular theory in France and is explained by the expert vintner’s at UKV PLC as the soil and climate of a region can be as important as the type of grape used in producing any wine. Each of the four main wine producing regions in France, which are Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, and the Loire contain a number of different terroir classifications that rates the region as a producer of wine. Each of the regions has its own unique traditions and individual characteristics that are affected by the climate and quality of the soil that affect how individuals wines are produced and fermented.
UKV PLC is one of the leading vintner’s in the U.K. and has developed a loyal following based on the independent nature of the company in terms of sourcing and buying wines. Many London based vintner’s have developed close relationships with individual merchants and vineyards that limit the number of options made available to clients when they wish to buy a specific wine; UKV PLC guards its individuality passionately and has developed close links with vineyards and makers without signing exclusive contracts that allows them to find up and coming vineyards that are creating the classic wines of the future.
