If you aren't already convinced, here are a few things that make Bordeaux so special to the wine making industry according to France.fr.

Terroir:

Located on the Atlantic coast, along the left and right banks of the Gironde, Bordeaux’s vineyards are shaped by the water that tempers its climate and flows through its vintages.

But the unique and varied composition of the soil is also at play in these outstanding wines. Indeed, the 13 grape varieties authorized for use in the appellation are perfectly at home here. In Bordeaux, their wines are made from an assemblage of varities.

Bordeaux Loves Reds

But the unique and varied composition of the soil is also at play in these outstanding wines. Indeed, the 13 grape varieties authorized for use in the appellation are perfectly at home here. In Bordeaux, their wines are made from an assemblage of varities.

More than 90% of the appellation’s wines are red. Merlot elegantly tops the list, reigning supreme on the right bank (Pomerol, Saint-Emilion). Cabernet Sauvignon brings its robust strength to the left bank (Médoc, Graves), while Cabernet Franc brings up the rear with its intense bouquet and colourful hues.

White grape varieties are also worthy of attention

In Sauternes, the alchemy of noble rot renders the sémillon sublimely sweet. Between Dordogne and Garonne, Entre-Deux-Mers is the promised land for a fresh, expressive sauvignon blanc. In Pessac-Léognan, both of these grape varieties are matured in oak barrels to produce great white wines worth waiting for: they’ll only get better in your cellar.

Bordeaux’s grands crus... and all the rest

Haut-Brion, Latour, Margaux, Mouton-Rothschild, Pétrus, Yquem... names that everyone knows even though they account for less than 5% of production. You don’t need to be rich to drink a nice Bordeaux.

The Bordeaux vineyards like to look good

In recent years, Bordeaux’s winemaking chateaux have enthusiastically defied convention in an effort to stand out and expand wine tourism. Renowned architects have designed avant-garde wine cellars that are a seamless addition to the landscape, and will be just as popular with wine lovers as with culture-vultures.

The Cité du Vin is not to be missed

With its daring architecture, varied programming, entertaining presentation, and open outlook, the Cité du Vin will delight and amaze. It’s a next-gen museum and a living, breathing venue where visitors are free to discover wine cultures from around the world.

More than 90% of the appellation’s wines are red. Merlot elegantly tops the list, reigning supreme on the right bank (Pomerol, Saint-Emilion). Cabernet Sauvignon brings its robust strength to the left bank (Médoc, Graves), while Cabernet Franc brings up the rear with its intense bouquet and colourful hues.

Bordeaux’s famous cannelés are matured in oak barrels

This little cake with its soft centre adorned with a golden crust also has its roots in winemaking. During part of the winemaking process known as clarifying, egg whites were added to the barrels to stabilise the precious juices. The unused yolks were then recycled in the cannelé recipe.

Bordeaux wines are a hit thanks to their varied range. Sublime châteaux steeped in history... contemporary wine cellars... but also “small winemakers” who are more than happy to share their passion.
