France

France produces a wide range of sweet and moreish dessert wines and at The Fine Wine Company is proud to stock a wide range of French dessert wines. There are many popular French dessert wines and the most well-known of all is the sweet Sauternes, which comes from the southwest of Bordeaux and uses late harvested grapes for additional sweetness in the wine.

The South of France is the main region from which dessert wines are produced and the hot climate helps the sweet, oxidised flavour of wines. Other popular French wine regions include Alsace, the Rhône, Loire Valley and Jurançon and our specialist buyers ensure they choose the finest offerings from the regions that dessert wines are known for. There are newer blends of French dessert wine coming onto the market, which produce a fresher, fruitier flavour than the old-style syrupy and sweet offerings. The fortified ‘Vin Doux Natural’ style of dessert wine is still the most popular.
