Hello, feel free to contact me for "Taylor made wine tour" in the Bordeaux area!
The MEDOC area (left bank, more Cabernet Sauvignon based) so prestigious , with its dazzling Chateaux all along the famous D2 wine road, counts no more than eight different "appellations": Margaux, St.Julien, Pauillac, St.Estèphe, Haut-Medoc, Medoc, Listrac and Moulis.....Different kind of soils, sub-soils, weather conditions.....in other words what we call here the "TERROIR".....giving different wines.
ST.EMILION/POMEROL area (right bank, kingdom of the Merlot grappe variety).
Wonderful historical background dating back to the 7th century.... Here we produce red wine since the roman era (about 2000 years)! Here, the Merlot combined with some Cabernet Franc gives its most beautiful expression!
Also the GRAVES area (left bank, south of Bordeaux) which is one of the oldest vineyard in the Bordeaux region, rewards us with its amazing red wines, dry whites or sweet whites talking about the very prestigious Sauternes region....
Finally, many other appellations all around Bordeaux (around 65!) will delight you, wether in terms of sightseeing or ....of course, wine tasting!
So, come & share!
