Bordeaux is one of the world’s most prolific wine areas and ranks amongst the most famous and prestigious. Names like Latour, Lafite and Margaux come to mind, though there are over 10,000 producers, 9 main grape varieties all enjoying the close influence of the maritime climate. It’s a recipe that delivers intrigue with every vintage across red wines from the Medoc, including areas like Pauillac, Margaux, St Julien, to St Emilion and Pomerol. The dry whites centre more on the Graves and the Entre deux Mers areas, with the superb dessert wines of Sauternes and Barsac close by. A region that has so much to offer and with prices to suit all budgets, even from some of the First Growths such as Mouton Rothschild with their ever popular Mouton Cadet.
