While Grenache may be Spanish, its greatest success story is probably in France, where it is the third most-planted red grape variety in France, after Merlot and Carignan. Grenache is a key component in some of France’s greatest and most famous wines, including: Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, Côtes du Rhône; the rosés of Lirac and Tavel; and the dessert wines of Banyuls, Roussillon, and Rivesaltes.
