Bordeaux Wine MapSplit into two areas, right bank (Pomerol and Saint Emilion) and left bank (the Medoc), the wine making history of Bordeaux dates way back in time, before the middle ages and before sadly, the loss of a famous battle at Castillon in 1453 which terminated the British ownership of these famous vineyards.


The red wines are made predominantly made from the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes which is the top vintages require at least 10 years of bottle ageing for the tannins to mature into a softer, rounder a style.

Unlike Burgundy, they are produced in large volumes and can, when purchased at correct prices, be a worthwhile investment as well as a delight to drink.
