Bordeaux Right Bank

Bordeaux red wines from the eastern or 'right bank' of the Gironde River are blends that are predominantly Merlot, with smaller amounts of cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon. Because of the greater presence of merlot, they are generally 'softer' and more approachable than Médocs, when young, but they can also show remarkable ageability in the appellations Pomerol (where Petrus is made) and St.-Emilion (Cheval-Blanc, Pavie, Angélus, Ausone, etc.).
