La Revue du vin de France is a French magazine on wine published monthly. The publication has been described by wine critic Jancis Robinson as "France's only serious wine magazine".[3]

Following the magazine's acquisition by Groupe Marie Claire in 2004, long-affiliated wine critics Michel Bettane and Thierry Desseauve left the publication citing reasons of editorial differences.[4][5]

Its editor Denis Saverot accused the French government of contempt for French culture, after a Paris court ruled that a Le Parisien article on Champagne was considered advertising subject to the Evin law, regulating alcohol and tobacco advertising.[1]
