Some winemakers choose to bottle a single grape varietal from a single vineyard in order to best express the character and nuance of that grape or parcel of land. Some winemakers feel that through blending different grapes or lots from different vineyards, a better wine with greater balance, harmony and complexity can be made. There are examples of great wines illustrating both philosophies throughout the world., as well as within the same country. l In France, the reds of Bordeaux are typically made from a mixture of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. In Burgundy, however, this practice is strictly prohibited, as the only variety that can be labeled as a Burgundy is Pinot Noir. In the United States, the regulations are consistent regardless of region. A wine may be labeled with a varietal such as "Syrah" if it contains at least 75% of that grape type.
