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.
Close to optimum climtic conditions made 2009 a great vintage in Bordeaux. The vintage is quite forward with a fruit friven style. The very experienced Monsieur Moueix has crrafted a beautifully elegant ,Merlot dominated, bio-dynamic red wine.poised and balanced with prlnty of ripe black fuit and dusty tannins.
