You may have probably heard the experts refer to a particular wine region as a terroir. This is used to refer to a specific microclimate and soil type, a particularly wonderful mixture of one or more vine varieties, and the correct processing of wine for these elements.
In a Bordeaux car hire your visit will be the most comfortable one, around this famous area for wine, experiencing the freedom to travel at your own leisure.
Covering the surroundings of Libourne, this terroir houses the AOC's from the Dordogne's Right bank. Soil of clay and limestone are its features, with bands of pure porous limestone, plus receiving good sunshine. As a result we get the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon to be grown here perfectly. Appellations of the area claim that Merlot can constitute 80% of the planted surface area due to its exuberance. This is for sure one of the best Merlots in the world, and so typical of this terroir.
This is a terroir composed of gravely and stony soils, commonly described as complex and masculine. This area covers the Baronne's left Bank, which includes a narrow 150 m long band of the finest vineyard soil, composed of gravel and stones, and carried from the Pyrenees Mountains by the river. No wonder why is the ideal place for Cabernet Sauvignon, and even boasting Crus Classés valued like works of fine art.
