French Bordeaux Wines | Buy Pauillac, Medoc, Pomerol & More Online

Known as the birthplace of Cabernet Suavignon & Merlot, it's no wonder that over 90% of Bordeaux wines are a blend of these 2 varietals. One of the most copied belnds all over the world, it includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec

Red wines from the Bordeaux region are typically medium to full bodied with with aromas of black currant, plums, and earthy notes of wet gravel or slate. With high tannins & structure, quality wines from these parts will age well for decades. Look out for foods with plenty of umami & fat to counteract the tannin

Vintages play a very important role for the quality of wines from Bordeaux, due to the inconsistency in the climate. Heavily influenced by the Atlantic Ocean & it's crossing rivers, the humidity & rainfall, as well as risk of hail & cold snaps, many top producers invest heavily into measures to protect their grapes. Look out for popular names like Lafitte

Medoc & Graves are your left bank wines, known for some of the boldest & most tannic Cabernet Sauvignon dominant blends, perfect for aging or red meats. Pauillac, Haut-Medoc and Margaux would be the famed regions. 

Libournais would be your right bank wines, where the red clay soils lead to a preference for bold, plummy Merlot dominant wines. Pomerol & Saint-Emilion would be your most sought after 

Bordeaux white blends are usually Semillion, or Sauvignon Blanc dominant blends. If you're looking for fresh acidity, look for wines from Entre-Deux-Mers, and Pessac-Leognan for creamy citrus like wines

Sauternais is a sweet wine from Saunternes, and some neighbouring appelations, due to the climatic conditions promoting Noble Rot. The morning fog common in the area promotes fungal growth, which concentrate the grapes as they lose water content. This concentration leads to a high sugar content.
