Each month a group of French wine lovers, known as #Winophiles, gather to explore a French wine region through its wine, food, and culture. This month we are highlighting Côtes de Bordeaux. Here is a brief preview of our Saturday Côtes de Bordeaux exploration.
Are you familiar with Côtes de Bordeaux? For starters it is a Bordeaux lover’s best friend because it produces lovely wines at value prices. Created in 2007, the terroirs of Blaye, Cadillac, Castillon, Francs, and Sainte-Foy united under one umbrella- forming a distinguishable brand. Côtes de Bordeaux is located on the right bank of the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers – accounting for up to 10% of all Bordeaux wine production. These are well made wines crafted from small family wineries with the standards you expect from Bordeaux; however, they incorporate modernity – are approachable and ready to drink upon purchase.
Here is a list of the participant’s upcoming articles – all will be live on Saturday, May 19.
