Red Bordeaux Wines

Bordeaux red wines are made from dark-skinned grapes but the juice within is white (next time you have a black grape try squeezing it and see!). So the wines obtain their red colouring and tannins by extracting the latter from the skin and soaking the skins in the juice during maceration. This process of maceration provides the wine with its aroma and tannic structure.

Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon are the main red grape varieties in Bordeaux, but the last 20 years have seen the growth of Petit Verdot, Carménère and Malbec. This greater diversity of grape varieties offers new possibilities to winegrowers: it multiplies the options available for new blends.

Another striking fact – while Bordeaux is known for its art of blending,  in recent years a wave of unexpected red cuvées is sweeping through Bordeaux and captivating wine enthusiasts young and old. Easy-drinking, diverse and exceptional value, these modern red wines are making their mark on Bordeaux’s already world-renowned reputation for red wine production.

Crafted to drink when young, but still with great ageing potential, the new red wines of Bordeaux are the result of innovative winemakers’ exploration of new styles and modern approaches. These are the wines you would want to enjoy with friends over and over again!

Food pairings for red Bordeaux wines

When it comes to autumn season, red Bordeaux wines are a favourite for many. An excellent wine to serve with a meat roast is a Merlot-based red Bordeaux.

Why not try a wine from Saint-Émilion where the Merlot grape is often the majority of the blend, and the full-bodied structured wines with ripe tannins will pair perfectly with your meat dishes.

While we highly recommend you surprise your guests and try a cheese board with a dry white Bordeaux wine – a perfect match – you can also stick to tradition and serve a Bordeaux red.
