This week’s grape variety is Cabernet Franc! Read below for information about this fragrant, well-structured parent of Cabernet Sauvignon that shines in the Loire and in Bordeaux blends.
.
Cabernet Franc is undoubtedly one of the most important and ancient varieties in the Bordeaux region. However, recent genetic and historical studies point to the Spanish Basque country for its place of origin. The earliest mention of Cabernet Franc was supposedly recorded in the Val de Loire under the local synonym ‘Breton’.
.
The etymology of Cabernet has been the subject of much speculation. The most convincing hypothesis is based on the Latin ‘carbon’ meaning ‘black’, in reference to the dark color of the berries. ‘Carbonet’ became ‘carbenet’ and metathesis (inversion of consonants) gave ‘cabernet’. However, the name Cabernet and its old synonyms (Bidure, Breton, Cabrunet, Carmenet, Véron or Vidure) were often given to several distinct varieties. As a consequence, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenère were frequently confused until the end of the 19th century.
.
DNA parentage analysis has shown that Cabernet Franc has parent-offspring relationships with two very old cultivars from the Basque Country: Morenoa & Hondarribi Beltza. Cabernet Franc has been established by DNA parentage analysis to be a parent of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Merlot.
.
Cabernet Franc is mid ripening, rather vigorous and suited to clay-limestone soils but also performs well on sandy soils if there is no water stress. It produces small berries. Cabernet Franc buds and matures earlier than Cabernet Sauvignon and thus more prone to coulure but easier to ripen fully.
.
Wine made from Cabernet Franc is generally paler, lighter, crisper, softer and more obviously aromatic than that of its progeny Cabernet Sauvignon. Its aroma spans a fine line between refreshing leafy and aggressively herbaceous, depending on ripeness level.
