The Graves de Vayres appellation

The Graves de Vayres appellation has existed since 1926, making it the second oldest appellation in the Bordeaux region and one of the first wine-growing associations in the Gironde. Located on the left bank of the Dordogne, west of Libourne, the vineyard has sandy, clay-gravel to gravel soils.

With a planted area of 700 ha, 316 ha of which are for reds, this confidential AOP includes 30 estates that produce 20,000 hectolitres/year, 80% of which are reds. The most used grape varieties are Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon for the reds, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon for the whites.

The wines of Graves de Vayres can be kept for 2 to 5 years for the reds, 1 to 3 years for the dry whites and 3 to 6 years for the sweet whites.

The Bordeau Rosé appellation

The Bordeaux Rosé appellation is the only authorised variation of the regional Bordeaux AOC. It is produced in the entire Bordeaux vineyard and represents a surface area of just over 3,500 ha. The same diversity of soils and terroirs can be found ; composed of sand, gravel, boulbènes and palus. The most used grape varieties in the blend are Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Bordeaux Rosé wines are supple, fruity and elegant with a good lingering finish. They should be consumed within the vintage or within two years of bottling.
