Bordeaux, a venerated wine region in France, produces both red and white wines, though red Bordeaux blends are the most commonly discussed. Within Bordeaux, the different areas like the Left and Right Bank (of the Gironde river) produce different blends of the core red grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec. Most Left Bank wines are Cab Sauv-dominant (like Margaux) and most Right Bank wines are Merlot-dominant (like Cheval).
