Bordeaux is one of the most significant wine-producing regions in France and one of the most well-known in the world. However, Bordeaux is frequently misunderstood as a single wine type, although this is not the case. Four Bordeaux classifications will help you find your wine by guiding you through the top estates' wine regions. Médoc (founded in 1855), Sauternes and Barsac (1855), Graves (1959), and Saint-Emilion (founded in 1955, then updated five times in 1969, 1985, 1996, 2006, and 2012), to name a few.
Only a tiny percentage of Bordeaux wines are white. Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon make up the majority of the blend. White Bordeaux comes in two distinct styles. The first is fruitier and lighter, while the second is creamier and more decadent. The delicate fruity varieties are usually less expensive. The other type is more difficult to come by and more expensive.
Bordeaux's future is here. Like the rest of the world's overseas purchasers, wine lovers have been unable to visit Bordeaux in the spring to taste the new vintage for the second year in a row. So the specialist tasted the entire bottle of wine in their apartment's kitchen! The Bordeaux wine trade has been much more efficient this year in terms of preparing and sending out samples and the overall condition of the wines.
