Barsac, an integral part of Sauternes

About forty kilometres southeast of Bordeaux, the Sauternes appellation wine area is crossed by the Ciron, a small tributary of the Garonne.

The Sauternes area is one of the rare regions of the world that favour the development of “Noble Rot”, or Botrytis, and the production of naturally sweet wines.

Located between Climens and Caillou, on the Haut-Barsac plateau, Cru Barréjats is a clay-limestone terroir of 5 hectares planted with very old vines, some over 80 years old.
