Summary

Grape

Malbec

Malbec originated in Southwest France, where it's also known as Côt; it is still the main grape in the area's top appellation, Cahors. It was once a significant blending partner in Bordeaux's reds, but has largely fallen out of favor there. Farther north in France, it has a presence in the Loire Valley. However, Malbec today is most associated with Argentina, where it has become the signature red grape. It's also grown in other New World regions, including Chile and Australia.
