A tale of two river banks

Although only separated by some thirty miles; the Medoc and the Right Bank are very different stylistically, historically and culturally.

The left bank is dominated by Cabernet plantings, largely due to the fast draining gravel found close to the Garonne estuary. St Emilion and Pomerol are predominantly planted with Merlot and a small smattering of Cabertnet Franc. These varieties thrive on the limestone slopes and clay plateau found around St Emilion and Libourne.

Bordeaux Producers

The great classified growths of the Medoc are famed for their impressive chateaux and sprawling vineyards. Although they can sometimes appear more corporate than artisanal, there is usually a passionate and knowledgeable winemaking team behind the scenes calling all the shots. Rock-star Gérants are charged with managing these estates and investing in the future. On the Right Bank there are some prominent chateaux farming on a grand scale as well as many family owned domaines, most notably in Pomerol, which are more akin in size and philosophy to the estates of Burgundy.

Appellations of Bordeaux

The ‘Appellations’ or ‘Communes’ of Bordeaux are split into large geographical areas, the most famous being: St Estephe, Pauillac, St Julien and Margaux in the Medoc, St Emilion and Pomerol on the Right Bank and Pessac Leognan in the Graves. There are also many ‘satellite’ appellations such as: Castillon, Lalande de Pomerol and Fronsac that are capable of producing excellent wines and offer value-for-money.

Grape Varieties of Bordeaux

The two major varietals grown in Bordeaux are Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The former is synonymous with the Right Bank communes of Pomerol and St Emilion, while the latter is the grape of choice in the Medoc. Blending is integral to the wines of Bordeaux, helping to provide balance and complexity. Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot are also important varietals that can provide perfume and spice to the blender’s palette of flavours.
