The stand-out wine, by a country mile, turned out to be Paul Louis - Curtis Marsh

The Paul Louis Brut Blanc de Blancs delivers French sophistication at an everyday low price. From the Loire region of France, the wine is made using the Traditional Method (Methode Traditionnelle) where the wine is fermented and aged in the bottle, the same process used in the Champagne region of France to produce Champagne. The wine is stored in underground cellars in the Loire for 9 months before release.

The wine is impressively packaged, looking more like a Grand Marque Champagne at a glance, and the name, well it's easy to pronounce and has a touch of class to it. It is made from 100% Chenin Blanc, which has been grown in the Loire Valley since before the Roman conquest of France and is used to produce high-quality sparkling wine. The Paul Louis Brut Blanc de Blancs has a fine persistent bead, a lovely vibrant nose complexed by yeasty brioche notes and a gently creamy palate with lovely natural acidity that finishes crisp and refreshingly dry. A wonderful aperitif to accompany hors d'oeuvre.  

"With all the champagne in France, including the good and the bad, it's easy to forget that other very fine sparkling wines are made there. If you're looking for a sparkling wine, but not Australian, French but not champagne, and at a bargain price, then the Paul Louis should fit the profile. And this might just be the perfect wine for summer; it has this amazing nose – reminiscent of the seaside. That means it will be a fine match with oysters and grilled flathead."  Jane Faulkner

Expert reviews

"We tasted several bottles of French fizz blind and also included a few locals. The stand-out wine, by a country mile, turned out to be Paul Louis. So there you have it.... and if you don't believe me, ask Jeffrey Grosset, Ron Laughton, Rolf Binder and Stephanie Toole."  Curtis Marsh, The Wandering Palate

France

There are 16 major French wine regions, each known for their own unique grape varieties, terroir and wines. They are Alsace, Armagnac, Beaujolais, Bordeaux, Bugey, Burgundy, Champagne, Cognac, Corsica, Jura, Languedoc- Roussillon, Loire Valley, Provence, Savoie, South-West and the Rhône Valley.

The largest region is Languedoc- Roussillon, the oldest is Provence, the most influential and famous are Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Loire Valley and the Rhône Valley.

French wine is labelled by wine region or appellation rather than by grape variety (except in Alsace). In order to guarantee the quality and provenance of French wines, the French government established the Appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) system. Under this system the wine label indicates the geographical origin, quality and, generally, the style of a wine. Many regions are home to multiple appellations; for example, the prestigious Bordeaux region in the southwest of France has over 60 growing appellations.
