Sweet Bordeaux

Sauternes, Barsac & Bordeaux's Other 8 Sweet AOPs
With Deborah Parker Wong
Nov 23 2021

Summary: 

Beyond Sauternes and Barsac there are eight AOPs for Sweet Bordeaux that frame the Garonne river. Although these AOPs are neighbors, their climatic and geologic nuances result in a complex range of expressions and wine styles from Semillon, Sauvignon, and Muscadelle.

Deborah will be presenting the following wines/AOPs geographically starting with the Moelleux which can be sourced from the entire region, then working counterclockwise from north to south down the Left Bank AOPs and up the Right Bank AOPs.

  1. Bordeaux Superieur Moelleux
  2. Cerons
  3. Bordeaux Superieur
  4. Cotes de Bordeaux Saint-Macaire
  5. Cadillac
  6. Sainte Croix du Mont
  7. Loupiac
  8. Premieres Cotes de Bordeaux

If you'd like, you can source some of the wines and taste along with her! As a special holiday treat two of our members attending the webinar will be randomly chosen and gifted one bottle of the above wines!
