Wine of Côtes de Bourg appellation
The wines from Côtes de Bourg come from the Bourg vineyards on the right bank of the Gironde estuary, about 35 km north of Bordeaux. The Côtes de Bourg AOC was granted in 1936 for the red and in 1945 for the white and covers fifteen communes stretching across the hillsides overlooking the Dordogne and the Gironde rivers. 

The mass of river water tempers the sunny microclimate on the hills. The soils are mainly clay-limestone, resting on layers of porous rock that provide good natural drainage. The 4,000 hectares of vineyards permit an annual production of around 200,000 hectolitres. 

The grapes used for Côtes de Bourg wines are primarily Merlot, combined with Cabernet Sauvignon and a smaller amount of Cabernet Franc. These elegant wines reveal their beautiful personality when paired with white meat, game and red meat. The wines of Côtes de Bourg display a very deep crimson hue with black tints. Elegantly full-bodied, they express aromas of stewed black fruit with a hint of undergrowth and spice. Aged in oak barrels, they are particularly suitable for cellaring (5-10 years) after which they develop a powerful yet refined bouquet of subtle complexity. Good examples include the wines from Château Martinat, Château Les Jonqueyres and Château Grand-Maison.
