Bordeaux from the Médoc region, on left bank of the Gironde Estuary, uses a predominantly cabernet sauvignon blend. The soil is rich and, because it is close to the Atlantic Ocean, it gives the wine earthy and mineral notes. Take a sip and enjoy as your taste buds flicker under the wine trying to distinguish between all the beautiful and rich flavours that are released. This is your excuse to drink up and indulge, bottle after bottle. Because, after all, it is all in the name of brushing up on and developing your wine knowledge and tasting skills. Even better, head to the Gironde Estuary on a mission of reconnaissance!
