The Bordeaux vineyard
AOC Bordeaux rouge, rosé, blanc sec et mŒlleux
AOC Bordeaux Supérieur
Bordeaux is the largest vineyard for appellation wines in the whole of France. Situated in the South West near the Atlantic, it is crossed by the rivers Garonne and Dordogne and enjoys a temperate maritime climate. The richness, the quality and the diversity of its wines derive from the particular character of the terroirs, the experience of the winegrowers and the art of blending. The greatest grape varieties in the world come from Bordeaux, but it is only in this region that they are blended to create such subtle, balanced and harmonious wines.
The Bergerac vineyard
AOC Bergerac rouge, rosé, blanc sec et mŒlleux
The Bergerac vineyard (for the most part Sauvignon Blanc) covers 13 000 ha and has no fewer than 13 AOCs. The Pécharmant and Monbazillac appellations are wines that come from well-defined terroirs, while the AOCs Bergerac (red, white, rosé) and Côtes de Bergerac can be produced throughout the region.
The Saint-Emilion vineyard
AOC Puisseguin Saint-Emilion
AOC Lussac Saint-Emilion
AOC Montagne Saint-Emilion
AOC Côtes de Bordeaux
Nestling amidst the most prestigious terroirs of the Libourne region, the satellites of Saint-Émilion (Puisseguin, Lussac and Montagne) have a texture reminiscent of that of their illustrious neighbours. The main grape varieties are Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Medoc vineyard
One of the characteristics of the AOC Médoc is the preponderance of small vineyards that have grouped together to form cooperatives in order to maintain their activity. In this viticultural region, the sub-soils are rich in clay, limestone and marine sediments. Regarding grape varieties, Merlot is planted everywhere, followed by Cabernet Sauvignon and, more rarely, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec.
