Not quite sure what you're asking but for starters, there is no inheritance tax between spouses in France. You don't say whether there are any hypothetical children involved, or whether those hypothetical children would be hypothetically the children of both partners or just one.

If the estate of the deceased person is in France, then it's subject to French succession tax, and also to French inheritance law unless the person has made arrangements for a will made in accordance with the laws of their own country to apply instead. It makes no difference what country the beneficiaries live in.
