For a winemaker, expressing the best the terroir has to offer first involves finding the right grape variety for the soil type, taking into account the climate-related data of the region.
From time immemorial, in Bordeaux, the skill and experience of winemakers has led them to select a handful of grape varieties which have ensured the repute of their vineyards. Blending, a delicate and crucial operation, lends the wine unparalleled fullness and body. In the blend, Cabernet Sauvignon, the key variety for dry gravel, brings structure and finesse, while Merlot, whose favoured terroir is clayey gravel, lends strength and fruitiness, as well as silky tannins.
