I have had a search of the forum but couldn’t quite find a thread on this, which surprised me (that means I probably missed it).
I’m looking to test a left and right bank Bordeaux to see what the ‘hype’ is and to see the difference between the two. I understand that left bank Bordeaux is often more tannic and therefore aged and right bank a little bit more mellow and young and this is all down to the growing conditions and the limestone.
Would members be able to advise one of each which would give me an understanding of what I might like, dislike and differentiate? I guess as this is exploratory I’d be willing to spend a bit more on the bottles but ideally just one of each.
As ever, I’m subject to the responses of the hivemind…
