"Wine is sunlight, held together by water" Galileo Galilei
A Bordeaux wine is any wine produced in the Bordeaux region of France, centred on the city of Bordeaux and covering the whole area of the Gironde department, with a total vineyard area of over 120,000 hectares, making it the largest wine growing area in France.
The wines are so good there that a Bordeaux ranking is needed to classify the best of the best. Some of them are universal: Margaux, Yquem, Petrus, Cheval Blanc, Haut Brion and all the others (there are 54 appellations of Bordeaux wine). Bordeaux has about 7,000 chateaux !
Wine has been grown in Bordeaux for two thousand years. Most probably vines grew there before the arrival of the Roman in 56 before J.C.. The poet Ausonius wrote about it, a chateau still bare his name, the "Chateau Ausone".
But unlike most of the other french wine regions, wine in Bordeaux was developed by merchants. In other parts of France, wine was under the power of monks.
During the last decades, the trend in Bordeaux is to put a brand name on the bottle with grapes coming from all over the region and even beyond.
