Vales covered with vines

Take one step in our region and without doubt you will be on the land of winemakers...

The land worked by Terre de Vignerons is made up of more than 15,000 hectares of vines, which amounts to more than 150 km²!

One vineyard follows on from another, but they are all unique in their own way.

 

The vales are covered with vines which thrive and evolve as the seasons pass.

Merlot

Red Wine
Rosé

Merlot is the most widespread grape variety in the Bordeaux region (50%) and is an early variety that is sensitive to spring frosts. It thrives in soils that retain a little coolness in summer, which allow it to develop favourably. For the wines, it provides considerable colour intensity, suppleness, aromas of fleshy red fruits such as plums, blackcurrant, cherries, figs, violet and sometimes grilled notes for older wines aged in barrels. The wine it produces can be enjoyed sooner and does not need to be kept in the cellar for long.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Red Wine

Cabernet Sauvignon is traditional in the Bordeaux region and is a late variety. It is generally harvested two weeks after the Merlot. To achieve optimum ripeness, it prefers warmer soils.

For the wines, it provides structure, vigorous tannins, aromas of black fruit such as blackcurrant, liquorice notes and, over time, subtle hints of undergrowth. It has a low alcohol content and good ageing potential.

Cabernet Franc

Red Wine
Rosé

Cabernet Franc is an earlier variety than Cabernet Sauvignon.

Except in rare cases, it is an excellent complementary variety, less coloured and tannic than Cabernet Sauvignon with which it is often combined (and blended). It provides freshness, subtlety and complex aromas with notes of raspberry and violet. It possesses good structure and potential for ageing.

Petit Verdot

Red Wine

This grape variety produces tannic wines with a strong concentration of anthocyanin, good structure, lively dark colour, very honourable alcohol content and good keeping potential. Furthermore, they take a long time to develop their bouquet.

As a varietal wine, it boasts deep aromas of cocoa and leather. However, it is most often used in blending with other grape varieties and brings forth spicy notes as well as aromas of liquorice and violet. Today, less and less Petit Verdot is being grown and its vines cover only several hundred hectares.

Sauvignon

White wine

Except in rare instances, Sauvignon Blanc is the reference grape variety for production of dry white wine. It gives the wines the required crispness, minerality and aromatic freshness. It has a specific character with notes of citrus, box tree and broom.

This major white grape variety in the Bordeaux region is used to make dry white wines and produces wines that are very aromatic, flavoursome, elegant, very subtle, balanced and musky. It can also be used, in lesser quantities, to make medium sweet Bordeaux Supérieur white wine and sweet desert wines.

Sémillon

White wine

Semillon is the main grape variety for medium sweet and sweet white wines. It is often used complementarily in dry white wines. It provides roundness and fleshiness as well as aromas of apricot and honey.

Exalted by noble rot, it develops very distinguished aromas. It produces dry white wines of great quality, with a wealth of fleshiness and medium to low acidity.

Malbec

Red Wine
Rosé

This rather rare grape variety in the Bordeaux region is used in low proportions in blending.

If the yields are low to medium, the wine it produces is coloured, rich in tannins, fruity as well as more tender than Cabernets and can be enjoyed sooner. It is known for its spicy, peppery and leathery aromas as well as jasmine, etc.

Muscadelle

White wine

Muscadelle is a minority grape variety in blending of dry and sweet white wines. It is a very fragile but interesting variety, with its musky and flowery notes, such as acacia and honeysuckle, plus a slight hint of muscat.

It is a white grape variety that originates from South West France. It is an appealing choice for sweet desert wines and also contributes to producing quality dry white wines.

Know-how passed from one generation to another

Know-how passed from one generation to another

Is winemaker the finest occupation in the world?
We think so!

 

As winemakers from generation to generation, our people’s vineyards are passed down and change over time.

Through planting, pruning, de-budding, harvesting, etc., their work is cadenced by the seasons, the weather but first and foremost, the passion and pleasure of perpetuating their parents’ history and writing their children’s future.
