The well-drained soils of this region are extremely fertile and the relatively humid temperatures suit a number a different grape varieties. Bordeaux wines have an unrivaled degree of complexity that make them a favourite with wine connoisseurs.
Bordeaux is divided into two main geographical areas - the left and right banks. The left bank is the primary growing ground for tannic and robust examples of Cabernet Sauvignon (although there are pockets of the left bank that produce fantastic dry and sweet whites). The Merlot and Cabernet Franc varietals prefer the cooler, water retaining soils that are a key feature of the right bank.
