7 AOC (protected designation of origin) from Bordeaux to discover:
- Premières Côtes de Bordeaux
- Bordeaux Supérieur
In Bordeaux, a unique microclimate allows for the development of sweet white wines with an intense flavour. Thanks to the morning mists and the hot afternoons, the grape bunches burst with aromas. The grapes, primarily of the Sémillon variety, are purposefully over-ripened.
They are harvested slightly earlier for sweet wines in order to extract a lighter juice. Fruit of a long labour both in the fields and the winery, sweet Bordeaux white wines offer a fruity sweetness and an exceptional aromatic richness.
Grape varieties: Sémillon, Sauvignon, Muscadelle.
Pairing ideas: sweet, salty or spiced dishes such as sushi, foie gras, spicy or exotic dishes, blue cheeses, desserts, fresh fruit.
