Pauillac is a jewel of the Médoc, it has indeed 18 Crus representing 85% of its production. The land is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon assembled Merlot and to a lesser extent Petit Verdot and Malbec. Experts agree that the Cabernet Sauvignon has here found its terroir. Pauillac mouth is full, rich, creamy, highlighted by a thin frame and tight bodied tannins. The aging of these wines is exceptional: they have a great aging potential, 15 to 25 years to see some great wines. Over the years, the tannins become rounder and aromas open, the wine is less aggressive and more and more delicate keeping their power.
One of the most cultivated grape variety in the world. Often blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc, it is grown in nearly every wine producing country, thanks to its hardy constitution. It can be identified by its thick skin and some low yields. In a blend, Cabernet-Sauvignon brings tannins, structure and acidity, which are the keys to a perfectaging process. Californian Nappa Valley has espacially well worked this varietal, which is the main factor of its extrordinary recognition and success. Known for its vegetal flavors such as mint and eucalyptus, Cabernet Sauvignon can turn a wine with herbaceous dominances if harvested too green.
It is the most representative grape of Bordeaux, covering 60% of the vineyard. It is found mainly in the Libournais, on the "right bank" of the Garonne, especially in Saint Emilion and Pomerol. This grape is easily exportable thanks to its adaptability to different soils. It matures very quickly on gravelly soils, but it is clay soils of Pomerol and Saint-Emilion that fit it best. There, the fruit is expressed all in delicacy, offering floral notes of violet, peony, and of black and red fruits. Among all Bordeaux varieties, Merlot is the one which offers roundness and smoothness to the wine. Over time, these flavors evolve towards undergrowth aromas, marked by mushrooms, truffles, tobacco and even old leather.
is a red-wine grape whose small, thick-skinned berries are valued for their high anthocyanins and tannins levels.The name Petit Verdot is particularly descriptive of the variety's characteristics. "Petit" is refering to the small size of the berries, and "Verdot" designates roughly its tendancy to produce unrippened and atrophied fruits in cool years. The 1960 and '70s marked the beginning of a new chapter in Petit Verdot's history: many Petit Verdot vines were uprooted, to be replaced with more reliable, more fashionable varieties. Wine consumers preferences were changing, in favor of plump, fruity Merlot and regal, structured Cabernet Sauvignon. Traditionally, the variety has played a small role in the classic blends of Bordeaux, but varietal Petit Verdot wines are now appearing in many regions of southern Europe, the Americas and Australia.It is added to blend to give a deep dark colour.
