Grenache, Syrah tour in Rhône Valley

GSM blend Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre

GSM stands for a blend of grapes that is used frequently in France : grenache, syrah and mourvèdre. Winemakers can create distinctive wines by varying the percentage of each of these grapes in a particular wine. More grenache, the lightest of three grapes, should make a lighter wine. More syrah, and you should get a bolder wine.

It seems grenache is the predominant grape in most GSM blends, but sometimes there is more syrah than grenache. Mourvèdre, the boldest of the three grapes, is usually added into the blend in small amounts.
