Wine of Barsac appellation
The Barsac AOC lies 40 kilometres southeast of Bordeaux, on the mouth of the Ciron, a small river which flows into the Garonne on its left bank. 

The cold waters of the Ciron create a special microclimate that results in the formation of mist overnight in autumn. During the day this mist gives way to the sun. This alternation is conducive to the development of noble rot (Botrytis cinerea), which attacks the grape skins causing the grapes to dehydrate. The pulp of the grapes is transformed into a kind of golden jam with a concentration of sugar, juice and aromas. 

Barsac wines are distinctively deep and intense on the nose, with a warm, elegant bouquet. They are powerful and crisp, broad and elegant on the palate, with fatness, freshness and an array of aromas of a rare richness. These aromas are a harmonious mixture of honey, white peach, almond, oriental spices, mango, pineapple, dried apricot, toast or even vanilla toast. Barsac wines have exceptional persistence and a long, very fragrant finish with pleasant minty overtones. 

The wines of the Barsac AOC are produced from the Sémillon grape variety, the dominant variety in the blend, as well as Sauvignon, and occasionally complemented by Muscadelle. The production of Barsac wines is perfectly mastered by the top domaines such as Château Climens and Château Coutet.
