The Cercle Rive Droite, established in July 2002, has represented for the
past 10 years a selection of 113 wines whose keyword is excellence.
As for the Cercle Rive Gauche, it was founded in April 2013. A parallel
association to the Cercle Rive Droite, it groups together 51 wine estates
carefully selected for the quality of their wine.
The concept is to take advantage of the drive and efficiency of the Cercle
Rive Droite, to promote the fine wines of the Médoc, Graves and
Sauternes.
With almost 164 wines, the Grand Cercle des Vins de Bordeaux presents,
during its trips abroad, a showcase of Bordeaux wines selected for their
high quality. Its vocation is to prove that in Bordeaux there are superb,
top-of-the-range and reasonably priced wines!


Ch Sainte-Barbe (Ambès) – This is a 27 hectare property run by the De Gaye family, currently seeking a UK importer. There is a real château here, an attractive chartreuse built in 1760, designed by Victor Louis, who designed the Grand Theatre in Bordeaux. The vignoble is mainly planted to Merlot, with a little Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc, plus Petit Verdot. Ambès is actually situated right on the tongue of land between the Dordogne and the Garonne as it forks into the Gironde Estuary.

Sainte-Barbe is not currently organic, but aims to follow sustainable viticulture. The 2016 red was fruity and pleasant, and not very tannic. A red from the 2012 vintage still quite dark in colour, but had a lovely pure scent and was very satisfying. Drinking now, but will improve over five years, for sure.

Production here is around 45,000 bottles. It’s the kind of Red Bordeaux which I think would pass under the radar of most wine critics (I suppose if it didn’t they’d have a UK agent). I think that such an estate is doing very well to be part of the Grand Cercle, standing beside some illustrious names. These are really just the sort of wines Bordeaux needs to promote. It sounds patronising to call it good honest Bordeaux, because that is once how such a phrase would have been intended. But this is a well made “petit château”, and it should be credited as such.
