CABERNET SAUVIGNON 

Destined for the ageing barrel

Cabernet Sauvignon

Also known as Petit Cabernet, Petit Bouchet...

The result of a cross between Cabernet-Franc and Sauvignon Blanc from which it takes its main characteristics, this grape variety is renowned for its ability to produce wines for ageing that acquire a particular finesse over time. Easy to grow, it is a rich grape variety from all points of view: wild and suave aromatic bouquet, remarkable tannic quality leading to silky wines. Sensitive to heat, this will condition the sensory direction of the finished wines according to the climate. It is the typical grape variety of Bordeaux, mainly from the Médoc and Graves regions, whose quality of wines has been copied elsewhere in the world but has not yet been equalled. Whether it is vinified in Bordeaux, California, Australia or Chile, connoisseurs appreciate it as a red or rosé wine for its blackcurrant and black cherry aromas. Often used in blending (with Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and occasionally Malbec) it brings its complexity and finesse.

Cabernet Sauvignon got its pedigree from the Bordeaux region, particularly in Médoc. It is omnipresent in the production of the great wines of the left bank of the Gironde where it finds its ideal terroir: among them, those of Château Lafite Rothschild, Château Latour, Château Mouton Rothschild. A reputation which contributed to its international influence.In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet Sauvignon is still used in blending to give the wine density and tannic structure. It contributes to the creation of fine wines (Grands Crus classés: Premier Cru...) because this grape variety is renowned for its ability to produce wines that can be kept for many years and acquire particular finesse and freshness over time. Wines that improve with age. Sometimes astringent in youth, this trait is why it is blended with grape varieties that produce fuller, rounder wines such as Merlot. Full-bodied, red wines need to age.Cabernet Sauvignon is also known as: Menut, Cabernet Petit, Vidure Sauvignonne, Bouchet, Petit Bouchet, Bouchet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Rouge, Vidure, Bidure, Petite Vidure Navarre, Burdeos Tinto (Spain)...
