Bordeaux is a huge region producing red wines at every level, but is obviously

renowned for its classed growths. Broadly speaking it can be divided into the left

bank (the familiar communes of Pauillac, Saint-Julien, Saint Estephe and Margaux as

well as Graves and the various other Medoc appellations) and the right bank

vineyards that lie above the Dordogne river namely Saint-Emilion and its various

satellites and Pomerol plus a host of other appellations. Cabernet Sauvignon

dominates the left bank appellations whereas Merlot is favoured on the right bank.

Thus the wines are often stylistically quite different, as different terroirs suit

different grapes. Vintages are important but not always a reliable guide.
