By country :: France :: Bordeaux
As a wine merchant, it is always important to have a quality selection of wines from the Bordeaux region, but this is all the more important for us as there are very strong historical links between Britain and the Bordeaux area. It still commands a lot of respect all over the world, particularly in the emerging markets of China and India, as well as more traditional wine drinking nations. The bottom line is that, when it comes to blending the likes of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, no region is able to produce the same quality than Bordeaux and the highly skilled winemakers that base themselves in the region.
Despite being best known for wines fetching record sale prices in auction houses across the globe, Bordeaux also produces a number of quality entry to mid-range wines that offer excellent value for money. Among these, Château le Grand Verdus is a personal favourite, while we are also delighted to add Château Fonbel St Emilion Grand Cru to our list, a wine produced by the Famille Vauthier, owners of arguably the most famous Château in St Emilion, Château Ausone.
