French Grenache Noir is a red wine grape variety that’s most famously grown in the Rhône Valley and Languedoc-Roussillon regions of Southern France. It’s the key player in famous blends like Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Côtes du Rhône, and it’s also used to produce some rosé wines. Grenache Noir wines are typically full-bodied and high in alcohol, with a lush, round texture. They often showcase flavours of ripe red fruit like strawberry and raspberry, sometimes with notes of black pepper, tobacco, or dried herbs. These wines can be enjoyed young, but they can also age well, developing more savoury and earthy complexity over time. If you enjoy red wines that are fruity, robust, and versatile, wines made from or featuring French Grenache Noir could be a great choice for you.
