SGC (wine)

SGC is a brand of 4 Bordeaux wines coming from parcels that were not discovered at the time of the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855, coming from secret parcels on both left and right banks of Gironde river, benefiting from specific soil components to produce a Grand Vin. SGC parcels are small in size and produce a red wine in the following appellations: Pauillac, Medoc, Pomerol and Saint-Emilion Grand Cru.

Each of the 4 wines has its own blend of grape varieties matching the specifics of the appellation. In average SGC produces 3500 cases per year.

Created by Arnaud Christiaens, a former financier in 2006, it quickly gained recognition from famous wine critics such as Michel Bettane and Jancis Robinson . World champion sommelier GĂ©rard Basset is the ambassador of the brand.
