You live in Singapore and miss French wine? Or you want to discover this French treasure?

The vast and confusing wine lists are enough to make anyone nervous. But fret not: here are some of the best French wines to shop in Singapore. Bonne dégustation!

Rouge – Red Wines

Red wine involves a process in which the grapes are pressed into juice, and then the grape juice and skins are placed together into vats for fermentation. In the fermentation process, the colour from the skins is broken down, and the wine becomes a dark red or brown.

Crozes Hermitage

Blood red colour. This classic French wine is medium-bodied, deep in colour, with aromas of red and black berry fruits, freshly ground pepper and a rich, smooth finish. Body has high tannins with acidity.

Château Pontet Plaisance

Very deep crimson in colour, Château Pontet Plaisance is ripe, full and generous with a touch of minerality. Light on fruit, with blackberry and cassis fruit and a note of toasty oak. Earthy and rich, medium bodied with good concentration and fine supple tannins.

A few kilometres from Saint-Emilion, Merlot is the essential component of the Crésus wine, which is on average 45 years old. This early variety with red fruit aromas, softer and fleshier than its cousin Cabernet, gives a supple wine that evolves quickly.

Blanc – White Wines

In the vinification of white wine, the grape skins are immediately filtered, leaving only the juice for fermentation. That’s why white wine, even after fermentation, remains very similar in colour to the pale gold of grape juice.

Domaine Vocoret & fils

Citrus and elderflower aroma wit little hint of yeast and minerals. Honest and fresh expression of Chardonnay with nice mineral length.

To pair with: Pork, rich fish (salmon, tuna), shellfish, mild and soft cheese …Famous French meals in Singapore

La chablisienne

A light, pale green coloured wine. A dry, medium body, that’s light on fruitiness. Fresh bouquet of honeysuckle, anise, hints of grass and orange. Notes of lime dominate the tasting, giving this wine instant freshness.This refreshing quality is quickly counterbalanced by a pleasant bitterness.

Alain Jaume & fils

The colour of this cote du Rhone wine is pale yellow, brilliant with a gold tinge. It has primary aroma of flowers and stone fruit. On the palate, the fruit is immediately present with touches of almond and white peach.

Rosé Wines

Rosé is fermented in much the same way as red wine. The only difference being that the juice is exposed to the skin for a shorter length of time. Because the grape juice and skins are in contact for only a short amount of time, just a small amount of the colour from the skins is broken down into the juice, thus making rosé a pale red.

Cave Augustin Florent

Decent summer wine. Strawberries with a smooth and herbal finish. Dryish taste, fresh and acidic. The finish is warmer and rounder.

To pair with: Pork, shellfish, vegetarian, poultry,… Famous French meals in Singapore

Château Simone

Chateau Simone rosé, with a deep ruby colour with amber reflections, is nervous and known for its body, its finesse and the delicacy of its fruit. On delicate notes of red fruits it shows a strong vivacity.

Fat bastard

A clear salmon color in the glass, this value-priced rosé opens with attractive notes of white flowers, strawberry and peach, with the faintest hint of white chocolate in the back. Despite the rich, ripe aromas, the mouthfeel is lightweight and well balanced by ample orangy acidity.

Hecht & Bannier

Our Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence rosé echoes white fruits and pêche de vigne but also delicate herbal notes of tarragon, bergamot and lime flower. The wine, lifted by a tang of fresh ginger, is refreshing on the palate.
