Premieres Cotes de Bordeaux is a white wine appellation in the Bordeaux region of France in which some interesting sweet white wines are produced. This elongated appellation which was established in 1937 lies on the right bank of the Garonne River on the opposite bank to the more famous sweet wine appellations such as Sauternes and Barsac.
The grape varieties that can be used are Muscadelle, Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris and Semillon. The grapes are picked very late and are usually left to become botrytised and are then carefully hand-picked.
