France’s largest wine producing region, Bordeaux is found in the southwestern area of the country, and benefits from a mild weather, and no dry season. Its climate is cool and coastal, and the resulting wines are very terroir-driven. Bordeaux has two main areas, called the Left Bank and the Right Bank. They lie in the heart of the Gironde estuary, divided by the Garonne and Dordogne rivers.
Left Bank wines are Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant blends, and Right Bank wines are more Merlot-dominant. Bordeaux, as a very popular wine region, produces an average of 700 million bottles a year.
Store unopened red wines in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from constant vibration. Keep your bottle horizontal in a wine rack or cellar to retain the moistness of the cork. The ideal temperature for storage is between 16 to 18°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
