The Millesima team has created the Bordeaux Prestige Wine Gift Set with two bottles from the Right Bank and one from the Left Bank, including esteemed bottles with unique expression of the terroir. Saint-Emilion is an appellation on the Right Bank known to red wine lovers around the world for wines with silky-smooth tannins and concentrated aromas of blackberries, ripe plums, black cherries, and chocolate. On the Left Bank, Saint-Julien is responsible for some of the most prestigious red wines in the world, With their delicate tannins, the style of the wines varies from powerful and opulent to fine and elegant. Margaux is another important appellation in the Haut-Médoc district of Bordeaux. The distinctive flavors and textures of Margaux wines are often attributed to the local soil.
