Bordeaux is the largest wine growing area in France at 120,000 ha, this creates an interestingly diverse style of wine, with about 54 different appellations and more than 8,000 producers or Chateaux. The region is mostly split by the Gironde river into the left bank and the right bank. The left bank is dominated by Medoc which is a blend, the primary variety being a Cabernet Sauvignon which is rich and powerful. The right bank produces Pomerols and Saint Emillion, the primary grape variety being a merlot which is generally soft and well rounded.

Burgundy wine, also known as Bourgogne, most famous for dry Pinot Noir reds and white Chardonnays as well as Gamay and Aligote.
Beaujolais and Chablis although technically part of the Burgundy region are often referred to under their own names. Burgundy wines are renowned for their constant appreciation and attention to the terroir (collection of all environmental factors) of their grapes.
The wine is ranked by terroir, with Grand Cru as the best vineyards (~2% of production), Premier Cru (~12%), Village appellations (which can still be exceptional from good producers), and then Regional appellation wines.
Burgundy regularly produces wine of the highest repute.

The Rhone can be divided into 2 sub-regions, Northern Rhone which produces Syrah grape red wines which often have mild olive aromas and Marianne, Viognier or Rousanne white wines, and Southern Rhone which are generally blends of a wide range of varieties.
Northern Rhone is generally a harsher climate and cooler than the Southern Rhone, but internally would show less of a range in terror compared to the range seen in Southern Rhone.
Southern Rhone is much hotter and would seem more Mediterranean, Southern Rhone produces a vast range of wine styles, as there are diverse microclimates caused by its rugged landscape.

Although Beaujolais could technically be called a part of Greater Burgundy, the difference in terroir is greatly different, which naturally leads to a very different style of wine.
The region has been known for producing light and fruity wines but has increasingly started to produce more 'Burgundian' Style wines.
Gamay is the dominant grape variety used to produce nearly all the wine.
