Cabernet Franc
An ancestor of the famous Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc is known for its mellowness, the refinement of its aromas and its vivacity, which is why it plays an important role in the blending of Bordeaux wine varieties.


A complementary variety
Cabernet Franc has tannins that are fine and round resulting in a lively character that can be appreciated quickly. But what is less known is that Cabernet Franc tannins can also age well, which is the reason why it is often blended with Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon.
Less tannic, it brings a marked roundness to Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as stimulating fruity notes such as raspberry that perfectly balance the green pepper notes of young Cabernet Sauvignon.
In young Bordeaux wines, Cabernet Franc's refinement is more apparent than its strength.
On the right bank of the Dordogne
Its favourite terroir contains sand and silt from Pyrenees gravel, which the Saint-Emilion-Pomerol-Fronsac region offers. Its relatively "hot" soils ensure Cabernet Franc an easier ripening than clay, and a stronger aromatic richness than on the terroirs of the left bank of the Garonne. In the Saint-Emilion-Pomerol-Fronsac terroirs, it is widely planted, especially in Saint-Emilion, where it competes with Merlot. In certain Saint-Emilion estates, it even dominates.
A valuable asset for certain vintages
Cabernet Franc is not very productive but ripens earlier than its relative Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a significant advantage in cold years when it becomes more generous, less vegetal and becomes the ideal blend with Cabernet Sauvignon, which it tempers. This less well-known variety became famous with the 2000 vintage, especially in Saint-Emilion, where it excelled.
