Chateau d`Yquem

The most famous dessert wine in the world? Probably. After an ownership history including the King of England in the Middle Ages, Chateau d`Yqeum has been making late harvest sweet wine since at least the late 16th-century. With grapes grown in perfect conditions for producing sweet wines, thanks to a gravelly topsoil and a moisture laden clay base, d`Yquem was classified a Premier Cru Superieur Classe Chateau in the 1855 classification. Planted with 75% Semillon and 25% Sauvignon Blanc and with a production of only 65,000 bottles thanks to a very judicious selection of only the best wines, this estate is a must for the serious sticky fan.

Undoubtedly the most well-known fine wine region on the planet, the French wine region of Bordeaux spans 120,000 hectares of vineyard and is demarcated by the Gironde Estuary and its two main tributaries, the Garonne and the Dordogne. The region is divided into the Left Bank, for vineyards located on the left bank of the Garonne River, and the Right Bank, for vineyards on the right bank of the Dordogne. Famous Left Bank appellations such as Pauillac, Saint-Julien, Saint-Estephe and Margaux are well-known for their quality, but value is also found in Haut-Medoc and Moulis. The Right Bank is well known for Pomerol and Saint-Emilion, while the upcoming regions of Lalande-de-Pomerol and Cotes de Bordeaux Castillon should not be overlooked. Close to the city Sauternes and Barsac make some of the world's best sweet wines, while the appellations of Pessac-Leognan and Graves do a fine line in rich reds and full-bodied whites. Red Bordeaux wines are made from a blend of grapes, and the permitted varieties are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and, less commonly, Malbec and Carmenere. Very broadly speaking, Right Bank wines will have a predominance of Merlot, while Left Bank wines will rely on Cabernet Sauvignon as the primary variety in a blend. White wines, both dry and sweet, are made from Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscadelle.

Bordeaux White Blend

The classic white wines from Bordeaux are traditionally made from Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and the lesser-known Muscadelle. Made as powerful, crisp, dry whites and honeyed, citrusy sweet wines, Semillon tends to be the backbone of the Bordeaux White Blend with Sauvignon Blanc adding freshness and, when used, Muscadelle brings aromatic, floral characteristics. Bordeaux White Blends are built to be aged and will develop deeper, richer flavours and a more honeyed, waxy character.
