Bordeaux’s Best: Left Bank vs. Right Bank
France is home to some of the world’s most prestigious wine regions, none more than the renown region, Bordeaux. Situated in southwestern part of the country bordering the Atlantic Ocean, Bordeaux is synonymous with complex, rich, ageworthy and terroir driven wines led by Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Bordeaux’s premier regions are the Left Bank and Right Bank, it is in these two areas that the finest wines are made. While Bordeaux does produce vibrant white wines blended with Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, it is the red blends made from the “Bordeaux varietals” that capture the wine world’s palate and cellar space. In this class, we will explore the unique differences in soil, climate and grape varietals and how this results in the different styles of wine from these two regions. You will experience firsthand where your taste preference lies and gain confidence in how to buy with more confidence.
