Wines from the right bank: Pomerol, Saint-Emilion, Côtes de Bourg …
Bordeaux without a doubt remains the world’s most important wine region. There are the famous First growth Estates that can make wines of breathtaking quality with prices to match ! (Mouton-Rothschild, Margaux, Latour…). Although Bordeaux is home of 2 key grapes that you all know, Cabernet-Sauvignon and Merlot, wines are so different from the ones produced in Napa.
