The Côtes de Bourg vineyards are situated on the right bank of the Gironde River, looking down on the estuary. The vines are planted on soft hills which inspired the name “little Switzerland” to this Girondist region.
Our Côtes de Bourg Vin Rare is made from vines planted on hillsides with clay and alluviae soils. It is cultivated respecting the rules of organic wine growing.
This cuvée is exclusively composed of Malbec grapes. During harvest, the grapes were sorted out, destemmed and then crushed. The fermenting time lasted about 3 weeks. The wine was then aged in tanks for 6 months.
The color is an intense dark red. The aroma of small black fruit is powerful, with some hints of undergrowth and spices. The palate is rich and velvety.
Serve at 18°C.

«A pure Malbec very greedy, rich and coated, which combines finesse and power.”
En Magnum (September 2017)
“The material is dense and ripe and the length remarkable for a wine of this price. A Bordeaux that combines classicism and modernity in a very homogeneous style”
Le guide des vins à petits prix – The guide of low-cost wines (december 2017)
“It is rather a rediscovery for this vintage already spotted last year for its very controlled alliance of aromatic richness, maturity, structure and elegance. 100% malbec, it reveals pretty floral and liquorice touches. Organic.”
Cuisine et Vins de France (special edition september 2017)
«fleshy and generous.”
Régal (September 2017)
The wine: powerful and deep aromas, black fruits, ink. The oak is still a little marked but the tannins are velvety, elegant and creamy. Matching: this pure Malbec will eulogize a rib of beef the the barbecue, in meditation and then joy.”
En Magnum (june 2016)
This wine will be delicious with entrecote, grilled duck filet or cow’s raw milk cheese (Saint-Nectaire, Brie de Meaux…)
