The Côtes de Bordeaux Blaye is a catch-all appellation in the Bordeaux region of France that includes everything produced within the Blaye district. This includes Blaye, Côtes de Bordeaux Blaye, and Premieres Côtes de Blaye. The various appellations had been struggling for marketable identity, and decided to unite under one Blaye banner that became official in 2009.
 
The reds are produced from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc, while the whites are Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, and Muscadelle. Small percentages of Ugni Blanc and Colombard are also permitted, but not as widely produced.
