Wine Essentials Focus - The Wines of Bordeaux  

For the wine enthusiast, the word Bordeaux is certain to conjure up thoughts of fine French wines from grand châteaux. The “Left Bank” of Bordeaux – with its gravelly soil and slightly warmer temperatures – is home to the Cabernet Sauvignon grape. On the other side of the river Gironde, the Merlot grape holds court with Cabernet Franc playing an important supporting role. The differences between the wines from these geographic subdivisions of Bordeaux are readily distinguishable: whereas “Lefties” are austere and powerful, “Righties” exemplify complexity in a more elegant and approachable manner.

We’ll taste seven wines (six will be red) that represent the various “personalities” of Bordeaux. The cost of these world-class wines is included.
