The Château de Marsan Bordeaux Rouge is a traditional Bordeaux wine, principally destined for restaurants and catering.
The Bordeaux Clairet is a rosé wine produced by a 48-hour maceration, which explains its more intense colour. This fresh full-bodied wine offers notes of strawberry and raspberry.
This Bordeaux rosé is obtained by direct pressing Cabernet and Merlot grapes, which explains its pale colour. A fresh floral wine, with citrus-fruit fragrances.
The Bordeaux dry white is made from Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon grapes grown on our sloping vineyards overlooking the Garonne River. Complex and full of character, this wine is best served after a few months of ageing.
The Premières Côtes de Bordeaux white is a sweet wine made principally from Sémillon grapes grown on old vines on our best-exposed gravelly slopes. The slightly sweet wine is subtle and fresh.
