Bordeaux – Left Bank, Right Bank

By Paige Donner

For most of us wine lovers, the word Bordeaux evokes Mecca-like dreams and memories of some of the world’s best and most prestigious wines.

For the Bordelais, there is a pronounced distinction between “Left Bank” and “Right Bank,” each with their own Bordeaux sub-cultures and each laying claim to world-renowned chateaux.  The Left Bank and its famous Medoc region boasts Mouton RothschildMargaux and Pichon Comtesse Lalande, while the Right Bank with its idyllic St. Emilion and Pomerol lays claim toPetrus and Cheval Blanc.

As a Californian, I thoroughly understand this West Coast/ East Coast kind of cultural divide. Californians and New Yorkers rarely have much in common except that they both, technically, belong to the United States. But rather than try to explain what the difference between Left Bank and Right Bank Bordeaux is, I captured these two back-to-back events in photos.

Left Bank (Medoc and Haut Medoc) has the Marathon du Medoc;  Right Bank (St. Emilion, Pomerol, Fronsac) has the Jurade Celebrations.

Well, have a look for yourself…  ♥Chérie Du Vin
