CÔTES DE BORDEAUX

SAINT-MACAIRE

Winding along the right bank of the Garonne River, the Saint-Macaire (or Côtes-de-Bordeaux-Saint-Macaire) PDO is a southeastern extension of the Cadillac region. The area's daytime heat and evening fog promote the development of noble rot in this small designation, located at the southern edge of the Entre-Deux-Mers region. It produces brightly-colored sweet wines, a straw yellow with flashes of gold, as well as dessert wines with an intense nose, blending ripe yellow fruit, almond, wax, and other notes.

DELICATE, STRUCTURED, OPENING ONTO LOVELY FLORAL NOTES

Along the limestone hills overlooking the river, the Premières Côtes de Bordeaux PDO enjoys a gravelly, clay-limestone soil in an oceanic climate. It produces delicate yet well-structured wines that open onto lovely floral notes, such as linden and acacia.

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION

Its sweet wines come from the vineyards of 39 villages along the right bank of the Garonne, south of Bordeaux. The varieties used are Sémillon, Sauvignon, and Muscadelle. These wines are produced from traditional harvesting and winemaking practices, aged between 10 and 18 months.
