Wines

The majority of Bordeaux wines are red wines made with six grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Carménère. That being said, if you're looking to really taste Bordeaux's diversity seek out these 4 major wine styles:

Cabernet-Based Blends – Age-worthy wines, deeply colored with lots of tannin, snappy acidity and flavors of blackberry and cassis, leather, smoke, toast, and herbal notes.

Merlot-Based Blends – Silkier wines with age-ability, these have softer and smoother tannins with ripe fruit flavors, hints of chocolate, and meatiness.

Sweet White Wines – Blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon, tasting of vanilla, walnuts, and baking spices. A delicious dessert in a glass.

Dry White Wines – Made with Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon, these wines offer creamy, smoky flavors along with yellow peach, grass, pineapple, and refreshing mineral notes.
