Bordeaux Right Bank Reds tend to be full-bodied and have high acidity. The Right Banks Bordeauxs are beautiful blends that consist mostly Merlot, making some of the most sought-after wines in the world.
The moderate climate of Bordeaux creates medium plus tannins and a stilted structure accent very earthy soil, tobacco, tar along with blackberry, raspberry, and plum on the nose and palate.
