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.
