Description to Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux AOC

The area in the south of the Bordeaux region was declared an appellation in 1980 under Cadillac. It is named after the town, which also gave the name to the famous car brand in honour of Antoine de la Mothe (1658-1730), the founder of the car city of Detroit and later governor of Louisiana, who was born here. The Cadillac appellation was and still is only valid for sweet wines. The red wines were produced until the 2008 vintage under Premières Côtes de Bordeaux produced.

In 2009, under the newly created umbrella appellation, a reorientation took place. Côtes de Bordeaux with a partly changed name. Under the new appellation name Cadillac - Côtes de Bordeaux, the vineyards cover 3,400 hectares of vines on gravelly and calcareous soils. These extend as a narrow band 5 kilometres wide and 60 kilometres long on the right bank of the Garonne from Langon to Bordeaux in just under 30 communes.
