Cabernet Sauvignon

Planted almost universally having begun on the Left Bank of Bordeaux, this famous tough-skinned small red grape gives tannin and body to the array of Bordeaux wines.

It is also successful in the New World, products from California and Australia having more potent flavours than those from native Bordeaux. Yet it is Bordeaux where the wine reaches its height; elegant, full-bodied and bold.

This variety is classically blended with Merlot or Cabernet Franc to elicit a deep and elegant wine, whilst in California it is often blended with Merlot.

Key Regions

France (Left Bank Bordeaux), Italy (Tuscany), South Africa, America (Napa Valley), Chile and Australia (Coonawarra and Margaret River).

Colour and Flavours

Since there is a great range of areas growing Cabernet Sauvignon, there is a great range of growing styles. From ripe and full-bodied berry styles to more herbal and tomato-bush greener styles, this variance in style in itself results in a variance of flavours, varying from blackcurrant to herbal and peppery tastes accordingly. Because of the high tannin in Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, the wines usually age very well, the texture becoming softer over time.

Synonyms

Navarre and Burdeos Tinto.

  1. Château Kirwan, Margaux

    Château Kirwan, Margaux, 2000 75cl

    Classic high quality claret that has plenty of aging potential due to its balance of delicate subtlety and sturdy structure. The palate is complex and the finish lasting but the best is still to come from this vintage.

  2. Château Beausejour Duffau, Saint-Emilion

    Château Beausejour Duffau, Saint-Emilion, 2002 75cl

    An excellent example of how a St Emilion can develop when allowed time to bottle age. The calssic aromas of plum and black fruit are joined by savoury, gamey note. The tannins are soft and luxurious and the finish is long and complex.

  4. Château Talbot, Saint Julien, 2004

    Château Talbot, Saint Julien, 2004 75cl

    A wine that is tempting to drink young as it has full fruit aromas and silky tannins but with a high concentration of fruit character this wine will age well and can be cellared for 10 years, if not more, before it shows its best drinking.

  6. Château Pichon-Longueville Baron, Paulliac

    Château Pichon-Longueville Baron, Paulliac, 2005 75cl

    Aromas of black cherry and spice hint at the power to come on the palate. This is a rich wine that maintains the smoothest of textures despite its robust qualities and elegantly persistent finish. This is Paulliac exactly a it should be!

  7. Château Talbot, Saint Julien, 2005

    Château Talbot, Saint Julien, 2005 75cl

    Like most 2005 clarets this is showing great character now but will also age well, we’re still not sure when this vintage will peak. Generous cherry and blackcurrant aromas are supported by firm but not imposing tannin and a long finish.

  8. Chateau Batailley, Pauillac

    Chateau Batailley, Pauillac, 2007 75cl

    Medium to full-bodied, supple textured, layered, rich, and long. The 2007 is slightly lighter than previous vintages, bringing a bit delicacy to this complex wine. This marks the renaissance of this fifth-growth Pauillac that is displaying strong signs of moving into the big leagues.

  9. Château Cantenac Brown, Margaux

    Château Cantenac Brown, Margaux, 2007 75cl

    This outstanding vintage has all the rich fruit character you'd expect from Marguax with this wine's best arguably still to come. It is a touch more lively than aniticipated with good tannic backbone. A well made wine which we would expect from this third growth estate.

  10. Château Fourcas Hosten, Listrac Médoc

    Château Fourcas Hosten, Listrac Médoc, 2007 75cl

    Lots of black fruit flavour here with black cherry most detectable. The fruit is supported by supple tannins that make for a medium bodied wine that is ready to go but will happily cellar for another year or so.

  12. Château Pichon-Longueville Baron, Paulliac

    Château Pichon-Longueville Baron, Paulliac, 2007 75cl

    Blackcurrant aromas are supported by subtle soft spice. The palate brings some blackberry notes with a hint of cedar and tobacco. Whilst not as intense as the 2005, this still retains the elegance of good Paulliac and makes a fantastic alternative if something a touch lighter is required.
