Wine Review Report:

Last reviewed: 26 October, 2020

The region of Bordeaux, together with Burgundy, is probably one of the most famous French wine-growing regions, both of which compete for the first place of the qualitatively "best wines". The city of the same name is the capital of the Gironde département with the estuary of the same name in southwest France and is considered one of the most beautiful wine cities in the world. The Greek historian Strabo (63 B.C.-28 A.D.) writes that when he visited "Burdigala" around 20 A.D. he would not have found any viticulture. However, this is not attested by his colleague Pliny the Elder (23-79) a few decades later. This means that the...

France is a relatively young wine-growing country compared to Greece and Italy. The first vines were brought to France in the 6th century BC by the Greeks, who founded Massalia (Latin Massillia = Marseille) in the southwest on the Mediterranean coast. At this time, the land that was only later called Gaul by the Romans was inhabited by the Celts. A lively trade developed and the Greeks covered the demand. When the Greeks migrated to the Po Valley in the 5th century, they got to know Italian wine and began to import it. The later French had been consuming wine for a long time before they began to cultivate it themselves on a large scale. The...

The red grape variety comes from France. The name is probably derived from the French word for blackbird (merle), because these birds like to nibble on the very sweet berries when fully ripe. However, the name can also be an allusion to the black-blue colouring of the berries similar to that of the bird. There are more than 60 synonyms, which testify the worldwide distribution. The most important are Alicante Noir, Begney, Bigney, Bigney Rouge, Bini, Black Alicante, Blue Merlot, Bordò, Cabernet del Cleto, Crabutet, Crabutet Noir, Crabutet Noir Merlau, Hebigney, Higney, Médoc Noir, Merlau, Merlot Black, Merlot Blue, Merlot Crni,...

This red grape variety comes from France. The name "Little Greenling" refers to the high acidity in the grapes, which are often underripe due to the long ripening period. Synonyms are Bouton, Bouton (Bonton) Blanc, Carmelin, Heran, Herrant, Lambrusquet, Lambrusquet Noir, Petit Verdau, Petit Verdot Nero, Petit Verdot Noir, Plant des Palus, Verdau, Verdot and Verdot Petit. It must not be confused with the Fer (Herrant) varieties or with Gros Verd ot, which was mentioned together in 1736, despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities. The exact parentage of the Petit Verdot variety is unknown; according to...
