It's not a co-operative or a trading house. Maison du Sauternes is a 1901 law association of Sauternes winegrowers. A showcase for the appellation, it includes 1 Premier Cru Supérieur – Château d'Yquem –, 11 Premiers Crus and 14 Second Crus Classés. This appellation groups together the communes of Barsac, Bommes, Fargues Preignac and Sauternes, located on the left bank of the Garonne. Among the 58 references, you will find here, Sauternes at the same price as at the property, at low prices (less than 15 euros) as well as much higher prices for the Grand Crus of the appellation and old vintages (count up to 1,000 euros). The little extra that makes the difference: you can taste the wine you want to treat yourself to and some wines are also available in half-bottles, 50 cl and magnums. The welcome is very friendly, and you take the time to chat without hurrying, leaning against the large wooden counter supported by barrels.
