All are convinced that the quality of the wine certainly depends on the quality of the grapes from which it is made. Depending on the region and appeal, oenologist can choose to use a variety of its wine or combine more varieties and make a blend. What are the characteristics that distinguish the two styles of wine?
An example of this Bordeaux, where red wines are often made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec even less Carmenere. Six varieties, each of which contributes to the taste of the final product.

A typical example of pure varietal wines is the region of Burgundy, where perceived receipt of red wine varietal Pinot noir and white is 100% Chardonnay. Of course there are exceptions, but the philosophy behind it is a vision of the wines from a particular region, as well as Chenin and Sauvignon Blanc are typical of the Loire Valley, Rhone Syrah for, etc.
Philosophy of pure varietal wines
Mystery set in pure varietal wines, “terroir”. The idea is that by reducing the variables that will bring variety in wine nuances that will appear will result from differences in the grapes, not the choice made ​​by the oenologist. For example, two wines made ​​by a oenologist from one harvest of the same variety will bring a different profile, due to differences in the origin of the grapes. It is these differences have inspired centuries of Burgundy winemakers and have contributed to the classification of the wines “Premiers” and “Grands Crus”. In search of pure varietal expression oenologist reduces its range of wines and is limited to one variety of grapes. As for blended wines, we can talk about philosophy characteristic of perfectionists. While pure varietal wines seek clear transcription vintage blend appeals to man’s ingenuity, not to forget an integral part of the concept of terroir. Blended wine looking final spending is the best that can be offered by the harvest. The terroir and different varieties are more resources than goals. These are routines that oenologist must know how to select to create a new, personal image. A variety of different harvests is more or less different. A terroir will be more impressive than another and that’s what it will be preferred. In Champagne seek regularity and even blending different vintages to create the same style in different years. Each consumer has their preferences and requirements for wine, pledge are individual idea of ​​wine that might buy next time. But one thing is clear, he is looking for the same quality every time, as if a bad vintage would not be sufficient justification for it for the poor quality of the wine cellar, which until now has consumed from previous vintages. Blending of wines without emphasizing the varietal composition allows use of the best of the harvest varieties, in order to maintain a constant quality of a brand. So wine is recognizable for its consistent quality and its comprehensive profile that different varieties with their specific characteristics lend.
Finally, there are two very different approaches, each with their own qualities, but the end result is the same: Diversity!
