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. Wines of the Bordeaux Sec appellation combine the fruit of the Sauvignon with the roundness of Sémillon in a well-balanced blend. A regional appellation covering the entire vineyard zone of the Gironde department.

grape varieties

60% Sauvignon, 35% Sémillon, 5% Muscadelle

winemaking and ageing

The grapes are harvested early in the morning to avoid strong heat. Rapid destemming and crushing of the grapes. Pressing as soon as possible, to avoid the grape skins colouring the juice, and just a few hours of skin contact (to allow extraction of the aromas). The must then has to be cold settled (clarified by getting rid of the solids) before the fermentation. The alcoholic fermentation continues until all the sugar is used up, to provide a dry wine. It takes place with temperature control in the presence of yeasts selected according to the required profile. Ageing on fine lees and in barrels for a minimum of 6 months. Fining and filtration before bottling.

food pairings

Serve at between 10 and 12°C with fish in sauce or soft cheeses.
