Chateau White Wine
Bordeaux is by far the biggest, most popular, and one of the best regions for French wine, both for high-end wines and for bargains.
What hits the headlines are the great reds from the famous chateaus, but Bordeaux is so large that there's plenty of variety.
The reds are fruity, but never too acidic, always with a coating of tannin that makes them excellent wines for cooking.
The whites are new, to have complexity, the best with wood flavors. The key red grapes are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc; Malbec and Petit Verdot are also included, while the whites are dominated by Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon.
