Introducing the Noble Grapes of France, wines that remain true to their roots – centuries old – for the winemakers who know and appreciate the difference. Each year our Restricted Quantities brand offers craft winemakers the opportunity to make truly outstanding wines from grapes grown in world renowned wine making regions. This year we bring you "Le Chateau Noblesse" — crafted from the original noble grapes of France - these are classic wines worthy of the most discerning wine cellar. Craft winemakers often seek out new wine experiences from regions around the world. But no matter what other wines we fall in love with, like old friends, we always go back to the original noble varieties of France: Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc. Our Wine making R&D Support has combined the best quality French grape musts with specialized yeasts, oak and grape skins to create these four French classic wines especially for our 2017 RQ program.
