Located in the south-west of France, characterized for having a moderate climate with high levels of rainfall due to its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and being naturally segmented by the Gironde Estuary, where the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers meet. Wines in this region are typically blends, predominantly Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, with Merlot the most widely planted variety. The most famous Merlot-dominated wines come from Saint-Émilion AOC and Pomerol AOC. Outstanding-quality wines are full-bodied with pronounced aromas of black fruits and flavors from oak maturation, which can age well in bottle, developing complex aromas of dried fruit and tobacco.
