What's in a Wine - P

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.

This village in the haut-medoc area of Bordeaux, France produces some of the most magnificant Bordeaux wines. 3 of the 5 premier cru and 15 cru classe chateau are located in the appellation surrounding the village. The main grape used in these wines is Cabernet Sauvignon which is blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Some chateau also use small amounts of Petit Verdot and Malbec.

This is the smallest Bordeaux district. It is located on the east side of France's Dordogne River. The red wine from Pomerol is primarily Merlot, which does very well in the area's clay based soil. The wines also contain Cabernet Franc and small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Pouilly Fume
This appellation in France's Loire valley region is comprised of vineyards in seven villages including Pouilly-Sur-Loire whose name is used in the appellation name. The only grape that can be grown here is Sauvignon Blanc. The French word fume means smoke which many feel characterizes the Sauvignon Blancs from this area which are said to be smokey or flinty.

Spanish DO, actually called Priorato, lying within the larger area of Taragona. The red wines in this region are made mainly with Grenache and Carignan. These wines are usually intense and full-bodied due to low yields on steep hillside vineyards. A small amount of white wine is also produced from Grenache, macabeo, and pedro ximenez.

Famous village in Burgundy's Cote de Beaune section of the Cote d'Or. Many people feel that the world's best Chardonnay's are produced here. A small amount of red wine is also produced from Pinot Noir but does not have the stature of the white wines.
