CÔTES DE BORDEAUX SAINT-MACAIRE
Winding along the right bank of the Garonne River, the Côtes-de-Bordeaux-Saint-Macaire PDO is a southeastern extension of the Premières Côtes de Bordeaux region.
The area that includes 10 towns in the canton of Saint-Macaire, produces brightly-colored sweet wines, with straw yellow and flashes of gold, as well as sweet wines with an intense nose, blending ripe yellow fruit, almond, wax, and other notes.
The Semillon grape variety frequently presents delicate aromas of flowers and white fruits. It is often accompanied by Sauvignon, Sauvignon Gris and Muscadelle grape varieties, which provide fruity notes and freshness.
These wines go well with white meat, fish and Asian cuisine, furthermore with cheeses, chocolate and fruits.
