Blaye is an Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC) for wine in the Bordeaux region. It is located on the right bank of the River Gironde. Together with its neighbors Côtes-de-Blaye and Premières-Côtes-de-Blaye, which together consist of 5,000 hectares (12,000 acres), it encircles the Côtes de Bourg appellation. These appellations together make up the Bourg and Blaye subregion of Bordeaux. The area has different types of soils, such as chalky, sandy, and chalky-clay. The red wines are powerful and fruity, and go well with red meats or cheeses. The white wines are dry and aromatic.
The label is interesting. I like the picture of the Château in the middle. It makes me eager want to know what building it is. However, I don’t know what it is. 🙂
I have not tasted this wine yet but I like to put it on my wine rack collection.
