Over the years, Bordeaux wine has evolved and changed to embrace sustainable practices, lots of vineyards have already converted to organic winemaking or are in the process of doing so, and a lot of modern techniques come from the Bordeaux region. This has resulted in a constant stream of modern and extremely drinkable wines. Some of the best Bordeaux wine is labelled as cru classé. Wine bearing this label is certain to be of the highest quality.
Bordeaux is famous for producing a wide variety of Bordeaux wines using grape varieties as Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sémillon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
As a simple guide: red Bordeaux wine typically pairs well with charcuterie boards. A crisp rosé Bordeaux wine works well with salads and fish, whilst a dry white Bordeaux wine complements white meat. Some say that white wine and oysters are a match made in heaven. Ultimately the decision is yours. Enjoy embracing and experimenting with flavours as you desire!
