The Bordeaux blend has been copied with considerable success in many other wine regions, the ultimate compliment. The Left Bank of the Gironde River boasts the great Chateaux of the Medoc and Graves, whilst on the Right Bank, Saint Emilion (arguably the most beautiful commune) and Pomerol. Bordeaux is synonymous with the finest quality, predominantly in red wines though great dry whites are made in the Pessac Leognan, and most wine lovers will strive to taste the sweet white wines of Chateau Yquem and its neighbouring Chateau in Sauternes and Barsac.
This is an early drinking red Bordeaux and should be poured and drunk over the next few years. Made from 50% merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc. Full of fruit and with smooth tannins, this wine can be drunk on its own or with food!
