Côtes de Blaye


Côtes de Blaye is the most northerly area of Bordeaux vineyards on the north bank of the Gironde, growing red and white wines. Cotes de Blaye is the white wine from mainly Ugni Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Côtes de Blaye lends its name to a number of "Bordeaux Côte" appellations, which is odd as, at the beginning of the 20th Century it produced mainly white wine for distillation into Cognac.
