The terroir of Bordeaux
There are five main wine-growing regions in Bordeaux:
- Médoc on the Atlantic coast
- Graves in the south of the city of Bordeaux
- Entre-Deux-Mers, hilly country between the Garonne and Dordogne rivers
- Libournais around the city of Libourne
- Blayais and Bourgeis at the confluence of the Garonne and Dordogne rivers
Bordeaux itself offers a wide variety of terroirs, what they have in common is the limestone base from the Tertiary period. Typical for the region are also alluvial soils of gravelly sand, which strongly characterize the west of Bordeaux.
In the cellar of Château Haut-Barry
Bordeaux wines have the status of a product with protected designation of origin (AOP). For vineyards with desired lower yields (<50 hl/ha), the classification is raised to Bordeaux Supérieur, as it is in the case of Château Haut-Barry.
The individual varietal wines are vinified separately in the estate. For this purpose, the berries are first slightly crushed and finally fermented in cement tanks under temperature control. After the maolactic fermentation, the individual wines are brought together again to produce the ChâteauHaut-Barry.
