Red Bordeux

Red Bordeux

Red Bordeux, called claret in the United Kingdom, refers to a red wine produced in the Bordeux region of France. White Bordeux varieties exist, however, red comprises nearly 90% of the wines produced in the Bordeux region.

Red Bordeux is usually made from a blend of grapes grown in the Bordeux region. Today, the dominant grape is typically Cabernet Sauvignon, with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Carménère or Malbec permitted as part of the blend. However, Carménère and Malbec are rarely used at this point.

Bordeux wines are counted among some of the world's most prestigious and expensive wines.

Red Bordeux should be served at around 64°F (18°C).
