Bordeaux – a classic meeting point

Bordeaux is the meeting point of three rivers, two famous banks, 57 appellations, 7.500 producers making more than 10.000 different wines. Quite an achievement for a region that only stretches for about 100 km around the city of Bordeaux and along the rivers Gironde, Garonne and Dordogne.

Bordeaux is also the meeting point of five red grapes and two white, creating the so-called “Bordeaux blends”. The reds are dominated by two major styles: “Left Bank” red blends made mostly on Cabernet Sauvignon and “Right Bank” red blends made mostly on Merlot.

For the whites there are two main directions: Dry blends made mostly on Sauvignon Blanc (for freshness) together with Sémillon (for body) - and sweet whites, the most famous being the Sauternes, which came to life as a result of Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Muscadelle grapes being affected with Botrytis cinerea, also known as noble rot.
