That France countries to be the best known wine producing country of the world is probably due to the conditions for cultivating vines in its vineyards.
Nowhere else in the world has such ideal circumstances for cultivating grapes as France for a good French wine. Winters are not too severe nor are summers too drym there is ample rain, and plenty of sun. The tremendous vatiesty of soil types also plays its part in centuries of successful viticulture in France: thick layers of chalk in Champagne, sedimentary layers with lots of shells in the Auxerrois (Chablis), marl, clay, pebbles and gravel in Médoc, bluer and grey shale in Muscadet, tufa in Anjou and Saumur, slate slopes in Collioure and Banyuls, warm boulders in southern Rhône for French wine.
Furthermore there is sufficient water throughout France, indirectly from the sea or directly from the may rivers and underground reserves.
