Discover the grape variety: Cabernet franc

Cabernet Franc is one of the oldest red grape varieties in Bordeaux. The Libourne region is its terroir where it develops best. The terroirs of Saint-Emilion and Fronsac allow it to mature and develop its best range of aromas. It is also the majority in many blends. The very famous Château Cheval Blanc, for example, uses 60% Cabernet Franc. The wines produced with Cabernet Franc are medium in colour with fine tannins and subtle aromas of small red fruits and spices. When blended with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, it brings complexity and a bouquet of aromas to the wine. It produces fruity wines that can be drunk quite quickly, but whose great vintages can be kept for a long time. It is an earlier grape variety than Cabernet Sauvignon, which means that it is planted as far north as the Loire Valley. In Anjou, it is also used to make sweet rosé wines. Cabernet Franc is now used in some twenty countries in Europe and throughout the world.

The wine region of Bordeaux

Bordeaux, in southwestern France, is one of the most famous, prestigious and prolific wine regions in the world. The majority of Bordeaux wines (nearly 90% of the production Volume) are the Dry, medium and Full-bodied red Bordeaux blends for which it is famous. The finest (and most expensive) are the wines of the great châteaux of Haut-Médoc and the right bank appellations of Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. The former focuses (at the highest level) on Cabernet Sauvignon, the latter on Merlot.


The wine region of Libournais

Rich in world-renowned wines, such as Saint-Emilion Grands Crus and Bordeaux/libournais/pomerol">Pomerol, the Libourne region Lies on the right bank of the Dordogne, on the edge of the Périgord. The region takes its name from the port city of Libourne, where many merchants from the Correze settled in the early 19th century. But its jewel is the small medieval city of Saint-Emilion, listed as a Unesco World Heritage Site and one of the most famous showcases of the Bordeaux wine region. The region is very homogeneous due to its hilly landscapes, its geology (predominantly limestone subsoil), the concentration of vineyards and the importance of family-run, small or medium-sized estates, which contrast with the large Medoc-type estates.
