Villa Burdigala


Bordeaux, the city of historic and cultural heritage, was founded between the third and the first century BC. Under the name of “Burdigala”. From that sumptuous era, the “Gallien Palace” ruins are the last trace still visible today in Bordeaux. This period is also marked by the appearance of the vine, newly cultivated around the city and assuring the prosperity to the villas of Burdigala.

Sensitive to the cultural value of the ancient heritage, the Maison Ginestet creates a Bordeaux wine range dedicated to this rich past : “Villa Burdigala”




Villa Burdigala Bordeaux Rouge AOP

Villa Burdigala
Bordeaux Rouge



TYPE OF SOIL : clay-limestone hillsides

VARIETALS : 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc

TASTING NOTES : This Bordeaux boasts a garnet-red colour with good intensity and purplish tints. The highly elegant bouquet rolls out red fruit scents, such as redcurrant and raspberry. The purity of the fruit in the bouquet announces a lovely full sensation on the palate. The attack is clean, delicate and well rounded.

In mid-palate, powerful yet silky tannins are revealed and we find the same sensations as on the nose. Served at a temperature of 16° to 18°C, it goes beautifully with red meat or stronger-tasting cheeses.
