The municipal appellation is the northern part of the area Graves ( Bordeaux ) and is named after the two main places. It covers 1,300 hectares of vineyards in the municipalities Cadaujac, Canéjan, Gradignan, Léognan, Martillac, Mérignac, Pessac, Saint-Médard-d'Eyrans, Talence and Villeneuve-d'Ornon. Prior to the classification as a separate appellation in 1987, to which André Lurton tried successfully, the area was called Haut-Graves .

The dry white wines off Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon are produced with barrel fermentation and oak wood finishing and are among the best in Bordeaux. The red wines are mainly made Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with shares of Cabernet Franc and Malbec ( Cot ) blended. These are the typical grape varieties of the Rive gauche (left bank). The cuvées in the wineries, however, are very different.
