When I think of fine wine, the first three regions that come to mind are Bordeaux, Burgundy, and Champagne. While I am well aware that many other regions in the world make great wine, much of that wine references back to Bordeaux, Burgundy, and Champagne. And, as much as I love Burgundy and Champage (and German Riesling and Southern Rhone reds and Port wine), for me Bordeaux is first. On this page, you will find some resources and notes on Bordeaux and its wines. To explore further, please click on the titles below.
