Château Dupeyrat Plouget

Côtes de Bourg


Côtes de Bourg is the only appellation in Bordeaux that all fits into one canton (an administrative area) Bourg-sur-Gironde.

The Bourg region is made up of a succession of hills, sometimes very steep, which end in abrupt cliffs next to the “rivers”. These wines are identified by their beautiful intense color as well as their robust well-balanced flavor. This 12-hectare estate located in the commune of Saint-Seurin de Bourg.

Château Dupeyrat Plouget is a small family winery dating from the 18th century historically known as “Cru Plouget” from the name of a relatively old locality that has always been planted with vines given its remarkably favorable exposure.

The vineyard is planted on gravely outcrops on the hillsides overlooking the Garonne river with an uninterrupted view over the estuary and benefits from excellent exposure to the wind and sunshine.
