LES CHARTRONS WAITROSE UK

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 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.
