Bordeaux is the world’s leading wine-producing region. It was geographically predestined to produce the world’s finest wines. The region has an ideal climate — moderated by the Gulf Stream, tempered by the Atlantic Ocean, with the tallest sand dunes in Europe and the forest of the Lands providing a natural wind barrier protecting the vineyards. The great diversity of microclimates and soils (clay, gravel, chalk, limestone) are ideally suited to Bordeaux’s different grape varieties.
