Bordeaux

Situated in South-west France, Bordeaux is one of the world’s greatest wine regions, and one to which all other regions are at some point compared. The city of Bordeaux sits at the confluence of the Garonne and Dordogne rivers, where it becomes the Gironde before flowing in to the Atlantic. It is this proximity to water, plus fresh Atlantic breezes and long warm summers, that makes Bordeaux one of the most perfect locations for fine winemaking.

The region can be split in to three main areas: the Médoc (or Left Bank), producing some of the regions’ top Premier Cru wines from predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon; the Entre Deux Mers (literally ‘between two seas’) in the centre of the region producing more approachable, early-drinking styles of red and white, and St Emilion and Pomerol on the Right Bank, which produce world class wines from predominantly Merlot grapes. No mention of Bordeaux would be complete without a nod to Sauternes, possibly the most famous of all sweet wines, made from Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc.

  • Château Peyredon Lagravette Cru Bourgeois Haut Médoc, 2015

    Good cassis character from the dominant Cabernet; lots of personality and a firm finish. 88 points Steven Spurrier, Decanter

    This elegant wine is rich, with lightly structured black fruits that reveal the generosity of the vintage and also the ageing potential. Powered by the juicy black-currant fruit of the Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a wine to age. 90 points Wine Enthusiast Read More.
