Cadillac - Côtes de bordeaux
Cadillac is part of the Côtes de Bordeaux appellation, officially recognized in 2011 for the ambitious reds made on south-facing slopes along the right bank of the Garonne river, 40 kilometers south of Bordeaux, on the opposite bank of the Graves and Sauternes areas.
Château Vieille Tour is located on a privileged terroir, on the highest slopes of the appellation, and the vineyard is dedicated to the production of top-quality red and whites, with a very good-value.
Merlot, blended together with Petit Verdot, Cabernet-Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc are planted on varied soils, mostly composed of clay and gravels, with pockets of limestone and sands, on slopes (locally called « côteaux ») rising from the river bank and offering a very valuable terrain.
