n the next area, it is important to discuss the winegrowing region located between the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers. The largest appellation here is Entre-Deux-Mers (ahn-truh duh merr
), which literally translates into “between two seas.” With approximately 7,400 acres, it's the largest subdistrict within Bordeaux
. Its undulating hills make it one of the most beautiful as well. The Entre-Deux-Mers AC applies only to white wines
made from Sauvignon Blanc
, Sémillon and Muscadelle. The white wines produced here are dry and crisp with citrus notes and hints of grassiness. Red wines
produced from the Entre-Deux-Mers region are sold as Bordeaux AC or Bordeaux Supérieur AC. The delicious wines of Château Bonnet are some of the most respected in this region.
