What's in a Wine - H


The Wine Buyer created this alphabetical list of wine "names" along with color, place and grape to help you decipher what's in a wine! In the US, most wines are labeled with what grapes are used to make the wine (there are some notable exceptions!). However, in other parts of the world, especially in Europe, many wines are named for their location, appellation, village, etc. In some cases, we've listed both reds and whites for a "name" if there are good wines made from another varietal. We also indicate if the wine is sweet if that's what the area/name is known for. Note that for Bordeaux, France we've listed the appellation/village names for most of the important ones but not the individual chateau. And in Burgundy it is possible that you won't find the village on the label if it's a Grand Cru wine. However, most of the Grand Cru have the name (or part of the name) of the village incorporated in their name, like the Grand Cru Charmes-Chambertin from Gevery-Chambertin. This can get complex! If you have another wine name you know about and would like to add to this list or have a question about another one, please let us know! We will be adding a new wine name to this list every week from our newsletter.

Haut-Medoc
This is the southern area of the Medoc in France's Bordeaux region. Located within this area are the six village appellations of Listrac, Margaux, Moulis, Pauillac, Saint-Estèphe, and Saint-Julien. Any other red wine from the area is labeled Haut-Medoc and the wine is generally considered to be superior to those wines labeled simply Medoc. The main red wine grapes used here are Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with small amounts of Petit Verdot and Malbec.

Hermitage
Some of France's greatest wines come from this appellation south of Lyon in the northern Rhone Valley. In this case, both red and white wines bear the name Hermitage. The reds are primarily made from the syrah grape. The whites are made using marsanne and roussanne...interestingly, small amounts of these white varietals are often used in the red wines as well!
