The Introductory French Bordeaux Pairing highlights a classic example of a Cabernet-based Left Bank Bordeaux next to a Merlot-based Right Bank Bordeaux.
This Pairing reveals the regional and varietal differences side-by-side between Bordeaux’s famous Left Bank and the more approachable styles of Bordeaux's Right Bank.
This Pairing includes the following wines:
Wine 1: Left Bank Bordeaux is filled with fruits like dried cassis and black plums with secondary notes of cedar, cured tobacco and violets.
Wine 2: Right Bank Bordeaux shows layers of dried red currant, Bing cherries, bell peppers, cigar box, mushrooms, sage and lavender.
