L'Herritage du Marquis de Greyssac Bordeaux

 

 

Bordeaux, in south-western France, department of Gironde, is the largest fine wine district
on Earth. It takes its name (which translates roughly as "next to the waters") from the port city
of Bordeaux. The great red wine areas are the Medoc, north of the city of Bordeaux, and to
the south: Pessac-Leognan, on the west bank of the Garonne river. Red Bordeaux wines are
blends of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and
Carmenere grapes. Generally Cabernet Sauvignon dominates the blend in red wine
produced in the Medoc. Typical top-quality Chateaux blends are 70% Cabernet Sauvignon,
15% Cabernet Franc and 15% Merlot. In the right bank appellations: Saint-Emilion,
Pomerol,..., Merlot tends to predominate. Typical blend is 70% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc
and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. Traditional grape varieties for Bordeaux white wines are
Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscadelle. Sauvignon Blanc is definitely the most
dominant grape in the dry white wine, while Semillon dominates the sweeter white wines
from the region.
