When one thinks of France, probably the first wine region to remember is Bordeaux.
The Bordeaux region is the area that more than any other has allowed France to become a great wine-producing country. A success obtained thanks to the particular conditions of the region, the attention to quality and a long tradition.
The enological grandeur of France has for years been built around this region, where excellent wines are produced, especially red wines, thanks to favorable climatic and environmental conditions and a long tradition. The three canonical vines at the base of the great red wines of Bordeaux are those of the famous "bordolese cut": Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc; in smaller quantities, Petit Verdot and Malbec can also be found in the assemblages. In Bordeaux, dry white wines are also produced, mainly derived from Sauvignon Blanc, and one of the most famous mottled wines in the world, Sauternes.
