One of the more colorful stories about Malbec is that it first appeared in France thanks to the efforts of a Hungarian peasant. While the exact story varies, most experts believe that the grape originated in what is now the northern area of the Burgundy region. Whatever the origins, Malbec is one of the six grapes most commonly used in the production of the popular red Bordeaux wine. The grape is noted for having an unusually thin skin. In order to ripen, it requires greater exposure to direct sunlight and higher levels of heat than some varieties. When combined with other fruits, the result is a wine with a full body and a pleasant taste that tends to linger on the tongue. In recent years, wines have appeared that use the Malbec as the sole fruit. Many experts project that these wines will command more attention in the years to come.
