Bordeaux - French Wine


The Bordeaux region of France is the second largest wine-growing area in the world with 57 appellations, 9,000 wine-producing châteaux, and 13,000 grape growers. Only the Languedoc wine region is larger. Bordeaux produces everything from large quantities of everyday table wine, to some of the most expensive and prestigious wines in the world.

Red Bordeaux, traditionally known as claret in the UK, is generally made from a blend of grapes. Permitted grapes are Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Carmenère, although Malbec is very seldom used and Carmenère is now virtually absent in Bordeaux.

White Bordeaux is made from Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, and Muscadelle.

The Bordeaux wine region is divided into subregions including Saint-Émilion, Pomerol, Médoc, and Graves. In 1855, a classification system, known as The Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855, ranked the wines into five categories according to price. The first growth red wines (four from Médoc and one, Château Haut-Brion, from Graves), are among the most expensive wines in the world.

The first growths are:

  • Château Lafite-Rothschild
  • Château Margaux
  • Château Latour
  • Château Haut-Brion
  • Château Mouton Rothschild

In 1955, St. Émilion AOC were classified, adding an additional two Premier Crus (Class A):

  • Château Ausone
  • Château Cheval Blanc

Pomerol has never been officially classified, but its best estates, such as Château Pétrus and Château Le Pin, fetch very high prices that often exceed even the prices of the first growths.

Sauternes is a subregion of Graves known for its intensely sweet, white, dessert wines such as Château d'Yquem. The intense sweetness is the result of the grapes being affected by Botrytis cinerea, a fungus that is commonly known as noble rot.
