About 50 km north-east of Bordeaux, this appellation spreads along some of the highest hillsides along the Gironde River. Although this appellation is mostly known for its red wines, it also produces a limited quantity of fruity and rich white wines.
Produce mostly from Semillon blended with Muscadelle and Sauvignon, the dry white wines of this appellation are vinified in barrels.
The Francs Côtes de Bordeaux reds are distinguished by their dense colour. Full-bodied and opulent, they have remarkable harmony and fine tannins.
