Assembling

Blending of wines from different plots and/or different grape varieties. The choice of blending is a very important decision for the winemaker. By playing on the proportions of the different wines in his cellar, he will create his own style. This decision is generally made with the assistance of an oenologist, sometimes several sessions will be necessary to find the right blend.
A good blend is often better than the best vat alone. For example in the whites, the Semillon brings structure and body to the wine, the Sauvignon brings aromas and freshness.
To make a branded wine in large volumes, a wine merchant selects and blends wines from several producers of the same appellation.
The blending of different grape varieties is characteristic of the Bordeaux region. Many other regions rather elaborate varietal wines.
