"The Carménère grape is a wine grape variety originally planted in the Médoc region of Bordeaux, France. A member of the Cabernet family of grapes, the name "Carménère" originates from the French word for crimson (carmin) which refers to the brilliant crimson colour of the autumn foliage prior to leaf-fall. Now rarely found in France, the world's largest area planted with this variety is in Chile in South America. In Chile, growers almost inadvertently preserved the grape variety during the last 150 years, due largely to its similarity to Merlot. In 1994, a researcher at Montpellier's school of Oenology found that "an earlier-ripening vine was Bordeaux Carménère, not Merlot". The Chilean Department of Agriculture officially recognized Carménère as a distinct variety in 1998." (Source: Wikipedia)
