Wines for Laying Down

The principal international red grape varieties which age successfully are cabernet sauvignon, merlot, syrah/shiraz, nebbiolo, sangiovese and, to a lesser extent, pinot noir. White varieties would be riesling, chardonnay and Loire chenin blanc. Add to them the botrytised dessert wine (like Sauternes) and Vintage Port. Other good keeping varieties include Italian aglianico, and the tannat of Madiran and the dry white semillons of Australia.
