Wine 101 - The Wines of Bordeaux (Part 2)

Exploring the Right Bank

Wine 101 - The Wines of Bordeaux (Part 2) Bordeaux is the world’s best-known, and largest, wine region, though its diversity makes for a deceptive impression. In most consumers’ minds it’s a land of grand Chateaux and high-priced wines, mostly red with the occasional white and sumptuous dessert wine.

The truth certainly includes this aspect of Bordeaux. There are expensive wines, wine royalty, and a disproportionate number of grand red wines coming from Bordeaux, but the fact of the matter is that Bordeaux is a large, complex region that has something to offer every drinker. All that is required is a bit of a tour, and some of the pertinent information that can help consumers identify where in Bordeaux they should be looking. Something like this tour! Last week, we explored the Left Bank. This week, we're focusing on the Right Bank.

    Sorry for asking, but what about some other regions like Mendoza and San Juan on Argentina and California on the US, aren't they some examples of larger producer regions than Bordeaux?

  • I used to get some great White Bordeaux that came from the St. Emilion region. I rarely find any discourse on White Bordeaux or offers for any of the Whites.
