Saint Emilion is one of the key appellations of the Right bank as well all of Bordeaux. Due to the weather Merlot and Cabernet Franc grapes are dominant here. Wines are saturated, fruity, with toasted aromas and even slightly sweet. Before falling in love with the dry Médoc wines, wine lovers usually dip their toes into the Saint Emilion ones first. Since 1955 the region follows the Premier Grand Cru classification system. Unlike the Left bank, Saint Emilion changes its wine house classification every 10 years.
Bordeaux wines are considered to be the most prestige and renowned in the world. The region is mainly known for its dry red wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes, and one can almost always find the word Château (French for „castle”) on Bordeaux wine labels. In order to understand the style of wine most desirable for your taste, it is recommended to try different samples from the Left as well as the Right Bank of The Gironde. Both banks differ not only with different soil, but also with the share of specific wines. There are several classifications in Bordeaux but the main one, introduced in 1855, hasn’t changed since and still impacts wine prices nowadays. A few years later, in 1936, an alternative classification system - Crus Bourgeois - was established. Bordeaux is known for a commerce praxis called en primeur - it means that a buyer can purchase wines immediately after harvest and prior to production for a substantially lower price, thus obtaining the opportunity to sell them for a larger profit later in the future. Bordeaux wines can be described as big, complex and with a strong character, but very friendly at the same time so that each and every wine lover could find something tasty and suitable for a great wine night.
