Dry wines, pleasantly fruity and fresh, the Côtes de Duras Rosé are generally made from blending (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet franc and Malbec grape varieties).
The Côtes de Duras Rosé was recognised as an Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (Controlled Designation of Origin) in 1937.
The subsoils of the Côtes de Duras Rouge appellation are composed of marine and fluvial sediments such as heavy and sticky clays called “Boulbènes” in the lower parts and the south of the vineyard; as well as marls and molasses & limestone and clay-limestone at a higher altitude.
