Bibendum: Top wine trends for 2019

6. Beyond the classics in France

Château Chalon dans le Jura français

“Savoie and Jura may be two of France’s smaller and lesser-known regions, but they’re big on personality, with many of the regions’ producers crafting individual wines that unashamedly sing of their unique place. With over half of premium outlets featuring Savoie on their wine lists, the trend is considered well established and set to become one of the main talking points in 2019.”

Bibendum wine buyer, Robert Mathias:

“Savoie is close to the Swiss border and as such, close to many ski resorts, resulting in these wines being widely consumed locally, with not much of it being exported. Producing lighter wines from indigenous grapes, and offering great value for money, the wines of Savoie are well worth exploring.”
