Region

Combined with the Cotes de Bourg, these two regions form the eastern bank of the Gironde as it flows north of Libourne. The red wines here are gutsy, with ample fruit and a distinct earthy terroir

Producer

This is 148 acre property is Bordeaux`s most extensive organic vineyard, situated on the right bank of the Gironde on the best limestone and clay soils of Cars, a small commune near Blaye. The 19th century Chateaux is dominated by a magnificent crenellated tower, offering magnificent views over this ancient estate.
Tasting Notes
The 3 hectare estate which produces this wine is located in Cars, close to Blaye and the bank of the Gironde River. Certified Demeter Biodynamic, great effort is put into producing this wine in as natural a way as possible, the result is low sulphites and a vegan friendly wine with lots of character. A 50/50 blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, the wine has a fresh, citrus acidity which balances perfectly the tropical fruits and subtle creamy notes from one third of the wine being aged in French oak barrels.
