LORELAI: It’s [the wine’s] got a nice smell: earthy, vibrant. I can taste the Italians’ feet.
RICHARD: It’s a Bordeaux. It’s French.
A Bordeaux is any wine which comes from the Bordeaux region of south-eastern France, centred around the city of Bordeaux. It is the largest wine-growing region in France, and most Bordeaux wines are red. They can range in quality from ordinary table wine to some of the most expensive in the world. Richard and Emily probably have something from the higher end.
