This variety take its origine in the Bordeaux area and its the second grape variety the most planted in the world after Le Merlot. The Cabernet Sauvignon is from the combination of the Cabernet Franc and the Sauvignon Blanc at the XVIIth century. France is the 1st worldwide producer of the Cabernet Sauvignon and its export well itself.

The bunch of grapes of the Cabernet Sauvignon are small to medium with little grape berries hard and pastries, at the thick peel very bloom with a bluish black aspect. The flesh is firm with a astringent taste and special flavour which is its distinctive feature.

Its tannic structure is really interesting , good at aging and wood maturation. It’s never vinified alone due to its lack of greasy and roundness.

When it’s young, the Cabernet Sauvignon develops spicy aromas, with a red berries side and a juicy side in the middle of the mouth. It gives this freshness impression, sometimes mentholated but which allude to red berries. When it’s get older, it gain in complexity, conserves a fruity note and especially develops aromas of cedar, cigar and spices.

Cabernet Sauvignon provides wines that have a very good tannic structure and a steady color when fully matured. They are generally suitable for aging. The aromas of this variety give way to a much more pleasant and complex flavor, when maturity is acceptable.

Here, at the Domaine it is the Anjou Villages, the Cabernet d’Anjou and the Anjou Rouge which are made of the Cabernet Sauvignon.
