Louis de Vallouit is most renowned for his Côte Roties and in particular for his prestige cuvees, Les Roziers, which is produced from a single plot of 40-year-old vines, and La Voniere. He also produces a superb Hermitage from 90-year-old vines in the Clos des Greffieres, the oldest plot of vines on Hermitage hill. With additional investment from its new owner, Domaine Etienne Guigal, this producer will surely now go from strength to strength. View all Domaine de Vallouit Wines

About France - Other regionsWhen it comes to wine, France is a classic. Classic blends, grapes and styles began in the country and they still remain. Think about it - people ask for a Burgundian style Pinot Noir, they refer to wines as Bordeaux or Rhone blends - Champagne even had to pass a law to stop international wineries from putting their region on the label of all sparkling wine.
The top regions of France are: Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Languedoc-Roussillon, Loire, Rhone. And these regions are so diverse! It makes sense that wine regions throughout the world try to emulate their style. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah are no longer French varieties, but international varieties. They may not be the leader of cutting edge technology or value-priced wines, but there is no doubt that they are still producing wines of great quality and diversity.
