Course: Bordeaux

Class 3: Beyond the Médoc


Although the Haut-Médoc is thick with famous châteaus, regions beyond the Haut-Médoc are home to equally renowned estates.

The Graves, which is the sole Bordelais region that produces outstanding reds and whites, is home to Château Haut-Brion and Château d'Yquem.

And on the Right Bank, Pomerol's Château Pétrus makes the most expensive wine in Bordeaux.

This class covers the noteworthy regions beyond the Haut-Médoc.
