Popular French Wines Under $20
While many of Vivino’s most popular French wines are expensive, we also see that superior French wines are not only the privilege of the elite that can afford the world’s best.
Several of our most popular and affordable red wines can broadly be found on many wine merchants’ shelves. These include the number one most popular French wine, Mouton-Cadet Bordeaux. There are also tasty examples from the South of France, Languedoc, and Rhône, such as:
- E. Guigal Red Côtes Du Rhône
- J.P. Chenet Pays D’Oc Cabernet – Syrah
- La Vieille Ferme Rouge
- Famille Perrin Côtes Du Rhône Réserve Rouge
- Château de Seguin Bordeaux Supérieur
The average rating of these wines ranges from 3.3 – 3.6 stars, making them solid value options. At a slightly higher price tag, the Saint-Émilion Grand Cru by the village’s cooperative winery called Union de Producteurs de Saint-Émilion is also broadly appreciated within the Vivino community.
