Bordered by wonderful residences and fields, discover the famous “Chateau wine road” which curves through all the Medoc like an open air museum.

Sauternes
King of the white syrupy wines, Sauternes is a natural sweet wine.
Of a major yellow colour, we can find honey flavours, orange or white flowers. Getting old, it becomes sweetier and then takes a more spiced taste, like gingerbread.

It goes perfectly with the "foie gras", sweeted-salted dishes and nut-tasted cheeses or Roquefort.
The secret of this wine so particular is due to the geographical situation of its wines, set up in a small valley crossed by a river (Ciron), which makes the climatic condition so particular to growth the grapes to an extreme maturity.
