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.
The Parlementaires played a strategic role in developing the fame of the wines of Bordeaux. It was Jean de Pontac, member of a rich family of Bordeaux parliamentarians, who had the idea of building proper viticultural systems to improve the quality of wines destined for the English market. As a result, vineyards began to be organised around châteaux, cellars, mansions and wineries, to confirm and make durable the region’s winemaking expertise. A modern range, emblematic of the finest Bordeaux tradition. Available in Bordeaux red, white and rosé, Bordeaux Supérieur, Lussac St Emilion, Côtes de Bordeaux, Médoc and Monbazillac.
