The Sauternes region is situated on the left bank of the Garonne, about 40km to the south of Bordeaux. In autumn, the microclimate in this area results in morning fogs, quickly followed by warm sunshine. The clay silica-limestone soil is what makes the difference between different wines in the appellation. With a magnificent old-gold colour, Sauternes wines are very sweet and rich in glycerol. They develop aromas of honey, acacia, apricot and citrus fruits. The vineyard parcels are located close to the river Ciron, which is responsible for the morning fogs necessary for the development of the famous Botrytis cinerea (or noble rot). Château Lavignac is located next to the prestigious Châteaux Bastor Lamontagne and Suduiraut.
