Bordeaux is one of the largest wine-producing regions in France, famous for its white wines. The region predominantly grows Semillon, which accounts for about half of the harvest, along with Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle. Bordeaux producers offer a variety of white wines, including dry, table, and dessert wines.
The classic wines have a strength of 12-15% and are renowned for their good gastronomic qualities, perfectly complementing the national French cuisine. White wine from Bordeaux pairs particularly well with fish, vegetables, and light salads with few calories, making it a popular aperitif in France.
