The Bordeaux wine region covers 60 miles along three rivers. The position of the region creates an ideal setting for winemaking. The region is complemented by a temperate climate, short winter, and high humidity due to its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. Over 90% of Bordeaux wines are red wines made with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. With 57 appellations, 7,000 wine producing chateaus, and 13,000 growers, it is no secret that the Bordeaux region is a wine powerhouse.
CHÂTEAU MORON LAFITTE
Château Moron Lafitte is a very old castle near the Garonne River.
This wine is made of 100% Merlot grown on 40-year-old vines. The vineyards are planted on limestone and clay soil. They are fermented in stainless steel and aged in cement tanks for one year before released.
Near Sauveterre de Guyenne, the Château Pombrède has been in the same family for four generations. This beautiful red from Bordeaux has a vivid red color, good intensity with a clean, fruity nose. Round on the palate, with a good level of supple tannins.
CHÂTEAU SAINT SEURIN
Château Saint Seurin de Leviac has been owned by the Jean family for about twenty years and the Margaux cuvée is a reflection of the warm and friendly spirit that prevails in the estate. The vines have an average age of 30 years and are harvested in pure Bordeaux tradition.
Château Moulinat has been in the Sage family for three generations, since 1840. The word “Moulinat” refers to the ancient millers of the Entre Deux Mers region. This amazing little chateau in Bordeaux is everything that you would want as an introduction to the region.
