Bordeaux Wines

The great Châteaux of Bordeaux and their vineyards still represent the pinnacle of fine wine for many - whether it's the muscular, long-lived Cabernet Sauvignon blends of Margaux and Pauillac; the soft, supple Merlot and Cabernet Franc-dominant wines of the Right Bank or the unctuous, complex sweet wines of Sauternes and Barsac.

While the Grand Vins of the First Growths continue to take top billing, Second Wines and those from smaller Châteaux offer superb value while a new breed of innovative winemakers are casting off tradition and forging exciting new ground.  As France's largest AOC, Bordeaux has a 2,000 year history that has shaped the world of wine well beyond the region's borders.
