Bordeaux

Renowned globally for its impeccable quality, Bordeaux wine, originating from the awe-inspiring region of Bordeaux in France, contributes to the region's reputation as the world's foremost wine-producing area. With around 120,000 hectares of vineyards, 57 appellations, 5,500 wine-producing châteaux, and a yearly wine production of about 960 million bottles, Bordeaux undoubtedly is a leading powerhouse in the world of fine wines.

Unveiling a kaleidoscope of flavours, Bordeaux wines are primarily a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, though other varieties such as Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec are occasionally used. The region is suitably divided into ‘left bank’ and ‘right bank’, delineating the remarkable difference in taste, aroma, and texture achieved through the variation in grape composition.

Bordeaux wines can range from everyday table wines to some of the most exquisite and expensive in the world. The region is well known for its long-lived red Bordeaux wines, also known as "claret" to many Britons. However, the region also produces opulent white wines primarily made from Sémillon and Sauvignon blanc.

Bordeaux’s terroir – its special set of environmental features including soil, topography and climate – is key to the creation of its distinctive wines. Furthermore, centuries of wine-making experience instilled in the châteaux's wine-producers lead to the production of wines with unparalleled finesse, complexity and balance.

Whether it's the rich, full-bodied Saint-Émilon, the velvety Margaux or the honeyed Sauternes, any wine aficionado shall find his or her delight in Bordeaux's broad spectrum of wines. This soul of French viticulture is considered an emblem of fine living and sophistication, making the tasting of Bordeaux wines a rite of passage for any wine lover.
