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.

MILD AND SMOOTH

Spread out over barely fifty hectares, this vinyard is located northeast of the city of Langon. 

These wines find balance in the mouth, in the freshness that is part of their smoothness. Smooth and mildly sweet.

Wines that are sweet and smooth, intriguingly supple, with delicious notes of candy and honey.

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION

These wines come from a vineyard of 10 communes in the canton of Saint-Macaire, which stretches over the slopes of the right bank of the Garonne, south of Bordeaux, dominating the medieval city of Saint-Macaire and its ramparts.

Numerous clayey-limestone or sandy clay hillsides rest on a calcium subsoil.

These grape varieties are Sémillon, Sauvignon and Muscadelle. They are produced at the end of the manual grape picking, and harvested at peak ripeness and, for certain successive selections, follow traditional vinification, aged for between 6 and 18 months.
