The Bordeaux region of France – the country's largest growing region – can be found along the Gironde estuary on the west coast. The rivers of the region are a key part of the flavor profiles.

Its blends are dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, producing a peppery wine with stronger tannins, higher alcohol content and a higher acidity.
