      The archetypal big red wine, Cabernet Sauvignon in its most prized form comes from world-famous wine regions such as Bordeaux and the Napa Valley. But this widely planted grape also makes Cabernet wine in delicious variations and a variety of prices in other wine-producing regions around the world.

      Cabernet Sauvignon grapes emerged from a spontaneous crossing of the red Cabernet Franc and the white Sauvignon Blanc grapes, appearing in Bordeaux some time before the 18th century, according to “The Oxford Companion to Wine.”

  • Moet & Chandon Imperial Brut

    • Geography

      For centuries, French wines have set standards to inspire winemakers around the world. No other country has France’s long history of fine wine production, which has helped define wine styles around the world.

      How significant is France in the world of wine? The most popular international grape varieties, from Chardonnay to Merlot to Cabernet Sauvignon, are native to France. In many years France produces (and consumes!) more wine than any other country. Its production and export of fine wines is unmatched.

      The ancient Greeks were the first to take advantage of France’s potential for wine production, as they planted vines in their colonies along the Mediterranean coastline more than 2,500 years ago. After the Romans conquered Gaul in 51 B.C., they took vines and winemaking practices north across the land. In the following centuries, Christian monasteries became centers for viticulture, and their monks made pioneering advances in both winemaking and distilling. By the Middle Ages, the English had already recognized the excellence of wines of France, and while they controlled Bordeaux they expanded the region’s existing vineyards to supply the brand-new export market.

      Based on the modern notion of Champagne as the epitome of fine bubbly, it’s hard to imagine Champagne originated as a still wine. First planted by the ancient Romans, the vineyards of Champagne have been thriving for centuries. According to legend, in the year 496, the first king of France was anointed with wine from the Champagne region. For a millennium, the coronations of France’s kings were held in Reims, in the heart of Champagne. The festivities always involved Champagne wine, perhaps beginning the historical association of Champagne with important celebrations.

      Winemakers love Merlot grapes because they are easy to grow and quick to ripen. Casual wine drinkers appreciate that Merlot wines can be soft and approachable, with delicious dark fruit flavors. In Merlot blends, the grapes add a moderating influence, providing measured tannins, soft texture, medium acidity and medium alcohol. Accordingly, Merlot balances the more rustic and herbaceous qualities of Cabernet Sauvignon, a frequent blending partner.

      Merlot can also make complex, full-bodied and concentrated wines with grippy tannins and aging potential. Many connoisseurs consider the best Merlot wine to come from Bordeaux’s Right Bank, where the varietal predominates in wines from St.-Émilion, Pomerol and other renowned appellations. Merlot is also blended to excellent effect with the other red Bordeaux varieties, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
