Bordeaux is the largest wine-producing region in France and is home to some seriously fabulous white wines. These wines are mostly blends and are composed primarily of Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc followed by Muscadelle and a few others.
White Bordeaux is usually lightly oaked and often possesses vibrant acidity and elegant citrus notes that lean toward white grapefruit.
Caves de Rauzan
Three histories and three structures merged into one to get stronger and resist the crisis. A cooperative movement that emerged in the 1900s managed to introduce the values of humanity and solidarity into our region located in the very heart of Entre-deux-Mers.
In 1933, a group of winegrowers built in Rauzan a shared winery which will become 70 years later the first French Cooperative winery to produce AOC wines.
In 1936, winegrowers from the neighboring communities of Romagne district united and founded the Grangeneuve Cooperative winery. And in 1937, The Cooperative winery of Nerigean was born.
“From this past we have preserved our aim for perfection and our desire is always to move forward.”
That’s why the Cooperative winery of Rauzan and the Grangeneuve Cooperative winery joined their forces on February 1st 2008. In 2016 the cooperative winery of Nérigean joined the Caves of Rauzan.
This new entity now represents more than 3,500 hectares of vineyards in the heart of the Bordeaux vineyards, and includes nearly 340 wingrowers. It produces around 200,000 hl of Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée wine every year: Bordeaux Supérieur, Bordeaux (white, rosé and red), Entre-Deux-Mers and Crémant de Bordeaux.
