Bordeaux

Bordeaux tasting Chateau Pavie and surrounding vineyards on Wine tasting tour in BordeauxFor many people, the very name Bordeaux conjures up images of grand Châteaux and equally grand wines. Whilst wines from around the world have improved in quality over the last 20 or 30 years, it is still the top Châteaux of Bordeaux against which the very best wines are compared.

Why does Bordeaux enjoy such a hallowed reputation for its top wines? In part, it is because of its historical pre-eminence. Having been lauded for centuries, the top Châteaux have been able to sell their wines for exalted prices. This has meant that they can be ruthlessly selective when it comes to choosing the best grapes from which to make their wines and that no expense is spared in the wine-making process. In addition, the unique terroir (soil, aspect and microclimate) of each of these estates makes an invaluable contribution to the character of each wine. On a Grape Escape holiday to Bordeaux, you can taste these world famous wines and visit these unique Châteaux; however the region offers much more besides.
