Dear Oenophile,

Like many other great wine growing regions, Bordeaux is broken up into two sections or ‘banks’. This is easy to distinguish due to the proximity of the southwestern town of Bordeaux, which is broken up into three rivers. The Gironde Estuary flows from the Pacific down south to the town, where it breaks off into two other rivers, the Garonne to the Left, and the Dordogne to the Right. The land of the Entre-Deux-Mers lies in-between. The soils on the Left Bank tend to be more gravelly in their make-up, while the Right Bank is rich with clay and limestone.

The soils on the Right Bank are much more suitable for Merlot and Cabernet Franc, where higher percentage of the final blends are made up from these grapes. The Right Bank wines show to be a little less acidic, less tannic, and more gentle on the palate compared to Left Bank wines. Right Banks tend to have more aromatically floral notes, and despite their similar longevity to the Left Bank, can be a bit more approachable upon release.

The Right Bank of Bordeaux has beautiful wines to offer, so browse through our impressive collection today!

Cheers!
