Bordeaux is the beating heart of French viticulture and the most prestigious wine region in the world. The success factors of this wine region in the southwest of France include the moderate maritime climate, the soil composition, the rivers Garonne and Dordogne that converge in the Gironde and the wine-growing traditions. More than ninety percent of all wines made here are red. King of the right bank, with famous areas such as Saint-Émilion and Pomerol, is the grape Merlot. On the left bank, in the most famous area of Médoc, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates. This southwestern wine region produces the most exclusive wines in the world and wines from good vintages can be kept for decades. The region has a large number of famous wineries, including Château Mouton Rothschild and Château Margaux. In addition to very exclusive wines, very affordable quality wines are also produced.
