Cotes de Blaye

'Cotes de Blaye' is the title given for wines specifically made for this district, which is located to the north of the Bordeaux region and centres around the town of Blaye, located on the west bank of the Gironde estuary. The appellation produces both red and white wines, with Cotes de Blaye red being primarily made from Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and being lively and fruity, while the white is made from a mix of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, and is drier and lighter.

The award-winning Chateau Les Bertrands have been producing both Cotes de Blaye Red and White near to the village of Reignac, north-east of Blaye for nine generations, over 20 hectares of land.
