Discover the grape variety: Tannat

Tannat is a red grape variety from Béarn which belongs to the cotoïdes family. Present in several vineyards of France, it occupies nearly 3,000 ha. Its leaves are reddish with tan patches. Its bunches are either of normal size or larger. Its berries have a thin skin and are rounded. Its foliage has a swarthy appearance. This variety must be pruned long because it is vigorous. It likes sandy and gravelly soils. Tannat is often exposed to leafhoppers and mites. It is also somewhat susceptible to grey rot. It has 11 approved clones, including 474, 717 and 794. Once mature, this variety produces acidic, fruity, tannic, acidic and full-bodied wines. Various aromas emerge, notably tobacco, cinnamon and exotic wood. Tannat is rarely used alone. It is combined with iron-servadou to obtain a fruitier taste or with cabernet sauvignon to be more rounded.

The wine region of Valence

Valencia is a province in the centre of Spain's sunny east coast, perhaps better known for its oranges (and paella) than its wine. The administrative center of Valencia is the city of the same name, the third largest in Spain and the largest port on the Mediterranean. Archaeological evidence suggests that wine making in Valencia dates back more than a thousand years, but the region has never been particularly prominent on the world wine map. In modern times, Valencia's wine production has focused on quantity rather than quality, although this is gradually changing.

In addition to the DO Valencia title, this province is also home to the Denominación de Origen Utiel-Requena. The laws relating to DO Valencia are overseen by the local Consejo Regulador (wine authority), established in 1957. The Valencia DO wine title covers 13,000 hectares (32,000 acres), unevenly divided between two distinct geographical areas. The smaller area, Clarino, is about 65 kilometers (40 miles) southwest of the city of Valencia, bordering the northern boundary of the Alicante DO area.
