The Cotes du Marmandais is an appellation created in 1990 for red and white wines [but 85% are red] from 29 communes around the town of Marmande along both banks of the Garonne river to the south of the Bordeaux region.The appellation uses the Bordeaux grape varieties with the addition of syrah,gamay and a local red grape called abouriou.This grape ripens early [indeed in California it was once known as'early Burgundy'] and has high yeilds. The area has a long history of viticulture going back centuries but was badly hit by the phylloxera epidemic in the 19th century and only really got going again in the later part of the 20th century
