the Côtes de Bourg appellation
The Côtes de Bourg extend over about fifteen kilometers along the right bank of the Gironde and the Dordogne. Its terroir is composed of clay-limestone, gravelly and sandy soils. The vines are planted on slopes with varied exposures, which explains the presence of numerous microclimates which influence the character of the wines. The vineyard, with a total area of 4,000 ha, mainly produces red wines (99%) with 3 to 8 years of aging. While Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are the most common, other grape varieties such as Cabernet Franc and Malbec can be used in the composition of the wines.
