Bordeaux-style Red Blend

About Bordeaux-style Red Blend

Bordeaux-style Blends are a style of wine rather than an individual variety. The five classic red grapes used are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Typically, Cabernet Sauvignon and/or Merlot are the main components in the blend, with smaller percentages of the other three varieties. Bordeaux-style blends may also be labeled Meritage or Claret. Though there is a regional name attached to this listing, not all wines categorized as Bordeaux-style Blends are from Bordeaux; in fact, Bordeaux-style Blends are produced all over the world.
