Bad weather takes toll on French wine production

French wine production is likely to be 10% lower this year than in 2015 because of frosty weather in spring and a heatwave now, officials say. A production of 42.9m hectolitres (hl) (944m gallons) is forecast for 2016, down from last year’s 47.8m hl. The harvest is expected to be down by about a third in the Champagne region.
