Côtes de Bourg AOC

Description to Côtes de Bourg AOC

The appellation named after the town of the same name (also Bourg or Bourgeais) is located on the right bank of the Gironde estuary in the French wine-growing region of Bordeaux. Bordeaux wines were exported from here to other countries very early on, but the area has always been referred to rather disparagingly as the "little brother" of the Médoc opposite to the west. The vineyards cover almost 4,000 hectares of vines on mostly clayey limestone soils in 15 communes of the Gironde department. A special feature is that, unlike other areas in Bordeaux, the area is largely frost- and hail-free. 98% of the wines are powerful, long-lasting reds, often dominated by Merlot (up to 80% in some châteaux ), which are mostly matured in barriques.
