Barsac is an ancient territory belonging to the king’s Provost, it had legal jurisdiction from the XIII century on over a vaste area including the towns of Barsac, Bommes, Cérons, Preignac, Pujols-sur-Ciron and Sauternes.

The French appelation system (A.O.C.) dates back to 1935. When the appellation Sauternes was created, the towns of Cérons and Pujols were excluded and placed instead in the area of Fargues, this fact being consistent with the 1855 classification of crus: the township of Fargues had a first growth, Château Rieussec, while there were no classed growths in Cérons or Pujols.

The wines of Barsac can be classed as either A.O.C. Barsac or A.O.C. Sauternes. All Barsac wine is thus Sauternes, but not all Sauternes are Barsacs. The production conditions for both appellations are the same.
