Cabernet Sauvignon - Wine Regions - Others in France

More than 60% of the production of Cabernet Sauvignon in France comes from the wine region of Bordeaux, while the rest is grown in the Loire Valley and along the coast of Le Midi.
Typically, Cabernet Sauvignon wines are less robust and have a lighter body, making them ready to be consumed earlier than Bordeaux wine. In southwestern France, rosé wine is produced in the controlled designation of origin (AOC) regions of Bergerac and Buzet.

This grape variety is used in several regions to enhance the flavor and body of Carignan, and is also combined with Negrette in Gaillac, Fronton, Tannat, and Madiran. In Provence, the grape has been used for more than a century, and winemaker Jules Guyot suggested blending it with Syrah.

In recent years, some Midi wineries, including Mas de Daumas Gassac, have gained worldwide fame for their use of a combination of Cabernet Sauvignon from Hérault and Rhône grapes such as Syrah in their wines.
Vin de pays de Languedoc is often produced with this type of grape. Languedoc wine producers have been greatly influenced by Australian winemakers to create wines that resemble those of the New World.
Overall, the grape variety that has thrived the most in the region is the least adapted to dry climates, unlike Syrah. Languedoc viticulturists who opt for Cabernet Sauvignon often have to resort to irrigation to compensate for the climate inadaptability.
