Chateau de Genibon - Bourg
France - Bordeaux
REGION: Bourg, Bordeaux, France
VARIETIES: Merlot, Cabernet, Malbec
Bourg (or Cotes de Bourg) is a smaller appellation of the Bordeaux behemoth, and often a decent bet when trying to find good value for money. It is on the same side of the river as St. Emilion and Pomerol, and shares similar soil types and dominant varieties. Genibon is part of a well-established Bordeaux family of domaines, and it is a good example of how a decent Bordeaux can be made at a fair price.
