Cabernet Franc Grapes Wine

Cabernet Franc Grapes Wine

Within the trio of Bordeaux varieties, alongside Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Cabernet Franc is often responsible for lending an aromatic quality and positive acidity to a blend. Known for its raspberry-like aromas, it is, after Pinot Noir, the best grape of the Loire, and is used to make wines such as Chinon. Back in Bordeaux, you will find Cabernet Franc's level of importance elevated in St Emilion, no more so than in the fabulous Château Cheval Blanc. As with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc grows best in warmer climates but hot climates will have a negative effect on the flavor. The grape is sufficiently robust for the fermentation temperature not to be critical.

Apart from Bordeaux and the Loire, Cabernet Franc grapes is grown in Italy, the USA, Australia, and eastern Europe.
