Right Bank Bordeaux

Here we go into the Right Bank of Bordeaux and associated appellations. If you’ve not yet read either my France Overview or my Bordeaux Overview, please do so, as there are a lot of key terms and concepts covered there that will help make sense of this post. I’ve also already covered the Left Bank of Bordeaux here.

Included is also a look at the Entre-deux-Mers as well as the sweet wine appellations of BordeauxSauternesBarsac, and other, smaller sweet AOCs.
