grape variety

Today I would like to talk about grapes varieties

There are many  grapes varieties around the world. In Bordeaux area the 2 major grapes varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Cabernet sauvignon is a famous grape variety. It provides wines with a tannic structure and intense color.

Merlot, meanwhile, offers  suppleness, roudness and fruity. The Merlot grape grains are larger than those of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Look at the 2 pictures :)


In all our wines we combine these two grapes varieties. This technique is called blend. This blend is done by Stéphane. During a very technical tasting , he decided the percentage of each grape variety that he will put in the blend.


This blend  will enable these two varieties to reveal, to highlight their qualities and values to form the wine you taste.
