The Bordeaux vineyards are so vast - 112,000 hectares - that there is not one but six wine roads! The Médoc, with its famous cháteaux, is located northeast of the city, whereas the Graves (the birthplace of Bordeaux wine) and Sauternes regions are to the southeast. The beautiful medieval town of Saint-Emilion is situated to the north and east of Bordeaux and, further west, the towns of Blaye and Bourg, linked by a corniche, overlook the estuary.
Indulge in new wines for summer and signature dishes from Michelin-starred restaurants such as Le Pressoir d'Argent Gordon Ramsay and Cordeillan Bages in Bordeaux.
|1. Cháteau Pichon Longueville
The Pichon Baron estate comprises 73 hectares of high quality gravelly soil. A very strict selection from the older vines is dedicated to the production of Cháteau Pichon Baron, of which the number of bottles is limited in order to produce only the best.
|2. Cháteau Mouton Rothschild
The property in the 18th century, along with Lafite and Latour, of the “prince of vines”, Cháteau Mouton Rothschild took its present name after it was acquired by Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild, covers around 16,500 hectares (41,000 acres).
|3. Cháteau Haut Brion
Out of the five First Growths (Premier Cru Classé), Cháteau Haut-Brion, produced in Pessac just outside the city of Bordeaux, is the only wine with the Pessac-Léognan appellation and is in some sense the ancestor of a classification that remains the benchmark to this day.
