Kevin's Place: Red Bordeaux—Expensive and Confusing?Nope… Hints to “Bank” On | Wines of Bordeaux and south-west France | Scoop.it

Customers are afraid of the Bordeaux section because first, they figure it will be expensive, and second, they don’t understand what they are reading on the label. Have no fear. Simply put, a red Bordeaux wine is a wine produced in the Bordeaux region of France. It is the largest French wine producing area, composed of over 120,000 hectares of vineyards and producing over 700 million bottles of wine each year.
