Discovering the wine region of Moldavie

Moldova">Moldova is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe, one of many former Soviet states in that region. It is separated from the western shores of the Black Sea by the province of Odessa in Southern Ukraine and Lies just North of Romania and Bulgaria). Moldova gained independence from Russia in 1991. It is now officially called the Republic of Moldova.

The Bordeaux Grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot have made their way into all Moldovan wine regions. As in many other regions, they have been grown with some success. Similarly, their Burgundian counterparts, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, are also present in Moldovan wines, as are German Riesling and light Italian-style Pinot Grigio. Grape varieties of more local origin are rather backward.

These include Feteasca Neagra, a red grape, and the unrelated light-skinned Feteasca Alba. In Moldova, the latter has often been confused with Feteasca Regala. These varieties translate into Black Maiden, White Maiden and Royal Maiden respectively. Rara Neagra is another dark-skinned variety that sometimes appears on export markets.

Discover the grape variety: Petit brun

The petit brun is a black grape variety that is becoming rarer. It is found particularly in Provence, where it is one of the many other grape varieties that make up the reputation of this region. It is probably of Italian origin and is used to make the best red wines. It is known as "brun des Hautes Alpes". In order to be more productive, the vine needs to be pruned short and develops perfectly when it is well exposed. In France, Petit Brun is one of the secondary grape varieties used in the Palette appellations. The AOC Palette is considered the oldest in Provence. The wine made from petit brun is a dark red, particularly tannic. It gives off aromas of undergrowth and a floral scent. In the wines of Château Crémade, the petit brun gives them an exceptional subtlety.
