There’s a regal quality to the great wines of Bordeaux—only fitting for a region the mystique of which gave rise to auction prices in the thousands for legendary vintages of famous Chateaux.
Great red Bordeaux emanate elegance and sophistication. Though they are made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot (along with Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Carmenere), these are not the full-bodied blockbusters of California. Typically medium-bodied, more food-friendly, and with a profile that hints toward the earthy side of the spectrum, Bordeaux ask you to participate as a drinker to uncover their more subtle charms.
Also, don't miss Bordeaux’s legendary dessert wine: Sauternes. Made from Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, and Muscadelle, this Noble Rot affected wine has been inspiring awe since at least the 18th century. Dry white Bordeaux can range from the refreshing, mineral-scented Entre-Deux-Mers to the typically oak-aged Graves.
