Cabernet Franc is less flavorful and less structured than Cabernet Sauvignon

Philippines Wine Shop Clark Wine Center is pleased to share with you articles, news and information about wine, wine events, wine tasting and other topics related to wine and the appreciation of wine.


In Pomerol and Saint-Emilion, the grape is known as “Bouchet”. The variety is also found in Madiran vineyards where it is called “Bouchy”. Further north, in the Loire Valley, particularly Touraine and Saumur, it sometimes goes by the name of “Breton”.


Cabernet Franc is used mostly in the Bordeaux region. It’s a variety with small bunches and small black grapes. It’s appreciated by winemakers because it is undemanding: any soil suits it.

However Cabernet Franc is less flavorful and less structured, which is why it is often combined with other grape varieties. The only regions making 100% Cabernet Franc wines are in the Loire Valley: Bourgueil, Chinon and Saumur-Champigny reds.

Wine and aromas

Like Cabernet Sauvignon wines, Cabernet Franc wines have a bright lively color. They have flavors of strawberries and wild blackberries.
