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.
Located in Moulis in the Medoc, Chateau Brillette boasts 100 continuous hectares, with 40 ha of vines. The plantings are made up of 48% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. The 2009 vintage produced a fantastic wine for Chateau Brillette. Remarkable value for money.
