Our territory is shaped by a vineyard with multiple AOC (Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée): AOC Bordeaux, Entre-deux-Mers, Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux, Montravel ... Benefiting from the proximity of the Dordogne and the Atlantic Ocean, as well as with a lot of sunshine, this vineyard and its terroir offer us elegant and aromatic wines.
AOC Bordeaux and Bordeaux superior
The Bordeaux and Bordeaux Supérieur appellations form the bigger vineyard France (63 hectares) and represent 000% of the Gironde vineyard.
Bordeaux wines come from blends of Bordeaux grape varieties (with a majority of Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon). They are fruity, light, and should generally be drunk quite young (they therefore have a fairly short aging potential, compared to the great vintages). However, for several years, some great Bordeaux, aged in oak barrels, allow a longer conservation.

Located on the left bank of the Dordogne, the wines of Entre-deux-Mers have the particularity of being white wines made from a blend of at least two grape varieties (e.g. Sauvignon, Sémillon, Sauvignon gris, Muscadelle). The area of this appellation represents 1620 hectares. Renowned for their fruitiness and aromatic finesse, they go perfectly with foods such as seafood because they enhance their iodized taste (e.g. Les Huitres du Bassin d'Arcachon and Cap Ferret).

AOC Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux
Formerly called "Côtes-de-Castillon", the Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux has a vineyard where there are many old vines (which allows to obtain more concentrated wines). There are two types of terroir in this appellation: the plain (which often gives fairly supple wines) and the slopes (which generally result in more powerful wines).
For more information, see Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux appellation website.
This appellation, located in Bergeracois, is bounded to the west by Castillon-la-Bataille and to the east by Sainte-Foy-la-Grande. It has features in common with the Bordeaux vineyards, in particular the predominance of Merlot for red wines (as well as sauvignon and sémillon for white wines).
