Bordeaux

France's Bordeaux is the world's most renowned wine region, especially noted for its rich red blends. The classic Bordeaux blend comprises Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc in varying proportions. For example, a "left bank" Bordeaux is generally Cabernet Sauvignon dominant, meaning over 60% of the blend. A "right bank" Bordeaux is usually mostly Merlot. When it comes to white wines, the blend is Semillon with a lesser proportion of Sauvignon Blanc. Finally, the heavenly and thick dessert wine Sauternes is considered to be the among the finest in the world.
