appellation was recognized in 1973 and, with the help of some strong personalities, it has been able to build a reputation that it had been lacking for many years due to the shadow cast by the huge wine producing region in the département next door. With similar varieties (Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon for red wines), the characteristics of Buzet wines
are also very close to those of neighbouring Bordeaux. The vast majority of the production of Buzet wines - red (85%), white and rosé - is controlled by the appellation’s wine growers cooperative group which covers no less than 27 communes.
Nearby, the vast Landes forest, the largest in Europe, agreeably tempers the oceanic climate. The climate and soil are propitious to wine growing and have encouraged the planting and development of one of the oldest wine producing areas in France. Today the Buzet wine region covers 2,000 hectares in production on 40 kilometres of hills.
The wines produced by Château de Gueyze offer a perfect example of the nobility of the Buzet appellation.
