Blaye-Cotes de Bordeaux
Four of the five Bordeaux Côtes have created a new, simpler AOC/appellation in a bid to make their wines easier for the consumer to understand.
- Côtes de Blaye
- Côtes de Castillon
- Côtes de Franc
- Premiere Côtes de Bordeaux
together will be called Côtes de Bordeaux.
Cotes de Bourg decided to remain outside of this unified system.
Premieres Côtes de Bordeaux became known as Cadillac-Côtes de Bordeaux.
The Cotes de Bordeaux-Blaye, Bourg, Côtes de Castillon; Côtes de Francs and Premiere Côtes de Bordeaux all have a long history of wine production. The wines will generally have more character than a straight Bordeaux A0C and provide great value.
