Bordeaux wine - Standard measure
Before going into detail about Bordeaux wine, let's go find the origin of French wine history. The culture of French wine began in the 6th century BC (BC), by the Phoenicians. Among the Phoenicians, the ancient Greeks made wine in southern Gaule. By the 2nd century BC, vines thrived in Provincia and Narbonne in the Languedoc region to export to Rome and Rome. Romans also grow grapes, but because Rome is an entertainment center, so much consumption is required to import wine from neighboring countries. At the end of the 1st century BC, at the beginning of the 1st century AD, due to the increasing demand for wine and large transportation costs, the vines were grown extensively outside of Gaule in the lands that fit the Biturica grape - nest fairy of Cabernet grape. In the Middle Ages, the transportation of wine on land by horse-drawn carriage was more expensive and dangerous than transporting by waterway. Therefore, the grape regions near the river also develop more favorably and are more commercially viable compared to regions without seaports such as Burgundy and Champagne. In the following centuries, the vine came to Bordeaux, Aquitania, Burgundy and eventually appeared throughout France. In 700, King Charlemagne developed his career as a wine. He created grape planting plans, grape picking techniques, grape juice and composted grapes in wooden crates to enhance the flavor.
Perhaps when we talk about the history of this wine region, we cannot ignore the historical event and also contribute to the introduction of Bordeaux wine to foreign countries, in 1152, the princess of Aquiteane is Eleanor married the English prince Henry Plantagenet. In the past, married women had to bring dowry. And of course, her dowry is Bordeaux wine bottles. The English people used to drink beer and whiskey before and after, so it was very interesting to drink wine. Besides, Princess Eleanor also intervened in the policy so that King Henry only reduced tax on wine imported from Bordeaux, increasing trade. The customs of this region apply a strange law that ships to and from ports must buy Bordeaux wine before they can trade or exchange goods. It must be said that thanks to the marriage on which Bordeaux benefited, Bordeaux wine outsold wine from other regions. So, Prince Richard the Lionheart used Bordeaux wine as his daily drink, and if Bordeaux was good for the king and the crown prince, would the British royal family refuse to use it. And from there, this region's wine is increasingly popular and widely used in the UK. They even exchanged goods with Bordeaux wine to store enough wine to enjoy in Easter and Christmas.

Characteristic features unique characteristics of taste.

And the last wine region that is mentioned is the "Entre Deux Mers" center which means the area between 2 river branches, though not as prominent as the previous 2 regions, but the soil here is extremely suitable for bottles of white wine are cool and crispy.
