- Château d’Yquem Sauternes
Other top wines here are from the famous and fine villages along the Left Bank of the Gironde estuary: Margaux, Pauillac, Saint-Julien, and Saint-Estèphe.
If you are wondering why wines from the Right Bank, which consists of famous appellations like Saint-Emilion and Pomerol, are so little represented here, it is probably because Right Bank estates are smaller, and their wines are therefore less widely available worldwide.
