Barsac

Barsac

Barsac appellation is situated in the southern part of Bordeaux regionon the left bank of the Ciron river and is inserted into the Sauternes area.

The 460 ha vineyard planted of Semillon, Sauvignon and Muscadelle produces around 11 000 hl per year of world famous sweet white wines. Barsac like Sauternes must meet strict production criteria to make the most concentrated French sweet wines.

Creating ideal conditions for the developpement of the Botrytis Cinerea (noble rot) which concentrates sugar in the grape and allows the production of sweet wines in the world. 

The soils of clay-limestone, gravel and sand make Barsac a rich, creamy and generous wine that can be fresh, fruity, nervous and always elegant.

Note: Any wines of the Barcac appellation could be classified as Sauternes but not the contrary. Several estates can be found in the official 1855 Classification.
