Cotes de Bourg AOC

Description to Cotes de Bourg AOC

The appellation named after the town of the same name (also Bourg or Bourgeais) of the wine-growing region Bordeaux lies on the right bank of the estuary Gironde, From here, Bordeaux wines were exported to other countries very early on, but the area was always referred to as the “little brother” of Médoc on the west. The vineyards cover almost 4,000 hectares of vineyards on mostly clayey limestone soils in 15 municipalities in the Gironde department. A special feature is that, unlike other areas in Bordeaux, the area is largely free of frost and hail. Strong, long-lived red wines with often dominant Merlot (up to 80% in some châteaux) are made to 98%, which are largely aged in barriques. The varieties Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Merlot are permitted. The few white wines are blended from Chenin Blanc, Colombard, Merlot Blanc, Muscadelle, Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. Well-known producers are Château de Barbe, Château Bégot, Château Brulesécaille, Château Clos du Notaire, Château de la Grave, Château Falfas, Château Fougas, Château Guerry, Château Haut-Guiraud, Château Haut-Macô, Château Macay, Château Mercier, Château Nodoz, Château Pexchaud, Château Roc de Cambes, Château de Rousselet, Château Tayac, Château Terrefort Bellegrave, Château La Tuilière.
