Cotes de Bourg

Côtes de Bourg is located on the right bank of the Dordogne river at the point where it meets the Gironde river in the Bordeaux region.

South of Blaye, the small appellation around the village of Bourg produces a better medium-body red wine than its neighbor. The wine from Côtes de Bourg is quite tannic with strong aromas of red fruits.
