Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux
Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux is a very recent appellation for red wines created in — and covering 1,000 ha around the town of the same name which lies 45km south of Bordeaux city on the Garonne River. The town is dominated by an impressive castle originally positioned to control the passage of merchandise along the river and levy taxes, so the townspeople grew rich on the income generated.
The red wines produced on a special combination of chalk and gravel on these west-facing slopes are now distinguishable from the broader AOC Côtes de Bordeaux into which they previously fell. The sweet white wines that have been made for many years under the separate AOC Cadillac, are on a similar quality level to Loupiac and Ste Croix du Mont but considerably below the finesse of Sauternes and Barsac which lie just across the river.
