In the Middle Ages Bourg was a major wine port and its vineyard spread along the bank of the estuary as the life and trade of the river grew. The Côtes de Bourg appellation made its debut on the right bank of the Gironde, to the north of Bordeaux's patchwork of vineyards. Situated 30km north of Bordeaux, the vineyard is spread over 15 villages surrounding the small town of Bourg-sur-Gironde and its terroir is very varied. The undulating region is composed of clay-limestone, silty and sandy soils, and the appellation benefits from a very favourable dry and temperate microclimate.

The Chartrons was the port for the Bordeaux wine business, situated at the edge of the Garonne. In the 17th and 18th centuries, merchants from northern Europe set up there to export the region’s wines internationally. The Chartrons merchants spread the fame of Bordeaux wines throughout the world. Our range Les Chartrons has become the ambassador for the wines of Bordeaux thanks to its authenticity and the strong symbolism it carries.
