Located south of the city of Bordeaux and home to the Cru Classe wines. Cabernet Sauvignon is at home in the gravelly soil. These wines tend to be a bit lighter in body than Haut-Medoc wines, more perfumed and maturing earlier. The best dry white wines from Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes come from this region.
