Carmenere was one of the original six grapes in France, along with Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec. It faded into obscurity until the early 90’s and now found its proper home (as the national grape) in Chile. If this story sound familiar, the same thing happened with Malbec. And now that’s the most popular grape of Argentina.
