- ‘Secondary varieties, all of these tested and developed at the region's important viticultural research station at Alaigne, include Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, and Syrah.’
- ‘The fruit is less well defined than the blackcurrant of Cabernet Sauvignon, but they are both characterised by dark, black fruit rather than the red fruit often found in grapes such as Pinot Noir and Grenache.’
- ‘They're using a gamut of grapes, from Grenache and Syrah to Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon.’
- ‘Purists may disagree with me, but I'm convinced that some red grapes - Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache are good examples - taste much better blended than they do in isolation.’
- ‘This blend of Grenache with 20% Syrah is packed with flavours of plum, raspberry and fresh herbs.’
