Dr. Kees van Leeuwen - Cabernet Franc in BordeauxDr. Kees van Leeuwen is a professor of viticulture at the University of Bordeaux. His work focuses on the effects of environment on terroir. He is also the viticulture consultant for Chateau Cheval Blanc in St. Emilion, one of the premier producers in Bordeaux, which uses a high percentage of Cabernet Franc in its wines.
Dr. van Leeuwen visited the Finger Lakes in late October, 2014 and presented a seminar to the region's industry about the role of Cabernet Franc in Bordeaux production, and some of the results of research that he and others have done on the variety over the past several years. Dr. van Leeuwin was kind enough to give his permission for us to share the slides from his presentation to the industry. You can find them by clicking here.
