Red Bordeaux Wines

The Romans introduced wine making to Bordeaux in the 1st Century AD and the Bordeaux region has been making wines ever since. Its success as a wine region is down to the climate and geography of the Gironde Estuary, which produces the 'oceanic climate' ideal for growing the permitted grapes for blending: Merlot, Cabinet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdoc, Malbec and Carmenere.

The Bordeauc Wine Official Classification of 1855 ranked the wines according to price with the First growth being among the most expensive wines such as Chateau Lafite-Rothschild, Chateau Margeaux, Chateau Latour, Chateau Haut-Brion and Chateau Mouton Rothschild.
