BORDEAUX CÔTES DE BOURG BY CHÂTEAU BELAIR-COUBET 2018

Bordeaux Côtes De Bourg 2018 is a small riverside appellation on the Right Bank, just across the river from Margaux. Its history and viticulture date back to the ancient Romans. Despite being one of the oldest, Château Belair-Coubet might be the most under-appreciated appellation in all of Bordeaux.

Despite being one of the oldest, Château Belair-Coubet might be the most under-appreciated appellation in all of Bordeaux.

Chateau Belair-Coubet, a division of Vignobles Alain Faure, is producing the kind of place-expressive, elegant Bordeaux that transports you to a time when quality was more important that quantity. Don’t take our word for it, based on the outstanding 5 Gold Medals for their “Bordeaux Cotes de Bourg”, the critics agree. This well-made, affordable Bordeaux containing 20% Cabernet Sauvignon is extra special.
