Left Bank

"The Bordeaux Left Bank contains both the Graves and Médoc regions... The region is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, resulting in tannin-rich, long lived wines. You'll also find Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Carménère in the region.

The whole Médoc region contains the Médoc AOC in the north and the Haut-Médoc AOC in the south. The Haut-Médoc in turn is home to some of the most famous Bordeaux AOCs, including Margaux, Saint-Estèphe, Pauillac, Saint-Julien and Listrac-Médoc. All wine made in the Médoc is red...

The Pauillac wine style is tannic, full-bodied and rich, with blackcurrant and plum flavours and notes of pencil-shavings and cigar-box. Cabernet Sauvignon is the predominant grape, and it‘s usually blended with one or two other grapes, including Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec...

The [Pessac-Léognan] region produces excellent earthy reds (using Cabernet Sauvignon and, typically, Merlot) as well as dry whites (using Sauvignon blanc/Sémillon blends) that are said to be among France’s greatest white wines...

Saint-Estèphe red wines are typically deeply-coloured and display pronounced tannins and acidity. As with much of the Médoc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot tend to dominate. These wines usually improve well with age and can be kept for many years...

Saint-Julien wines [typically] manage to combine the rich, tannic qualities of Pauillac wines with the refined elegance of those from Margaux" - Airoldi
