Sweet white wines from Bordeaux – not just Sauternes

“Vins d’Or de Bordeaux” (Golden Wines from Bordeaux) is a theme under which Bordeaux wants to publicise the sweet wines from the region, and perhaps in particular some of the lesser known appellations. Sweet whites are produced on 4068 hectares, which represents only 2% of the total area of Bordeaux. The appellations included in Vins d’Or are:

– Bordeaux Supérieur
– Côtes de Bordeaux Saint-Macaire
– Graves Supérieur
– Premières Côtes de Bordeaux
– Sainte-Foy Bordeaux
– Cadillac
– Cérons
– Loupiac
– Sainte-Croix-du-Mont, and of course
– Barsac and
– Sauternes

… all well worth tasting.
