Great Bordeaux Wines directly from France
Here we are in the world's largest winegrowing area, spread out along three rivers, with more than 105,000 Ha (250,000 acres) and 53 appelations and entirely within the Gironde department. There are over 3000 chateaux, of which 200 are famous.
In the North, the Médoc is one the great areas for red wine and its village names resonate throughout the world of wine, Pauillac, Margaux, Listrac, Moulis, Saint Julien, and Saint Estèphe. South of Bordeaux, there are Graves (Pessac Léognan) and sweet wines : estates produce the famous sweet wines of Cerons, Sauternes and Basrac on the left bank of the river Garonne, while on the right bank, Sainte Croix du Mont and Loupiac are to be found in an enclave opposite the southern part of Graves, near Langon.
Semillon and sauvignon are the main varietals grown for white wines. They grow best in geological conditions similar to that of the Haut-Médoc, composed of gravel, sand, clay and marl. The climate is generally warm and sunny. To these two main varietals are added muscadelle, merlot blanc (white merlot) colombard, mauzac ondenc and saint émilion.
Between the Garonne and the Dordogne, Entre deux Mers (between two waters or for classicists, Mesopotamia!), the largest Bordeaux region grows a wide variety of different whites and reds (the latter from cabernet sauvignon, Cabernet franc, merlot and malbec) : Entre Deux Mers, Premiéres Côtes de Bordeaux, Côtes de Bordeaux Saint Macaire, Saint Foy de Bordeaux et Graves de Vayre.
On the other side of the Dordogne, and going towards the North, are to be found wines where the merlot predominates. From the Libournais, to the Blayais, Bourgeais, and Fronsac, passing through Pomerol and then the villages and hillsides of Saint Émilion.
