Terroir

At the heart of Bordeaux terroir

Overlooking the Garonne, the Côtes de Bordeaux area begins just south of Bordeaux to the village of Cadillac. Dry white wines are sold as Bordeaux AOC and sweet wines under the Cadillac appellation. The red wines of Côtes de Bordeaux are colourful and powerful. Although all kinds of wine are produced in the area, the Côtes de Bordeaux gradually built its image and reputation.

Located in the heart of the land, the Château de Pic dominates the valley of the Garonne and can enjoy an exceptional view. The vineyards surrounding the château covers approximately 40 hectares of hillside that consists of deep gravely soil allowing heat to stack on a clay and limestone subsoil with rock outcrops small inliers. This particular structure is an excellent natural drainage of the gravel and clay ridges. These soils are fundamental to the final complexity of our wines.

Regarding the vines, although the traditional grape varieties is a quasi-equilibrium between Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon which combines flexible and austere tannins, new development plans will include less common varieties such as Cabernet Franc and Malbec to bring delicate aromas and facilitate wine aging. This restoration should allow to preserve better the tradition of assembling wines in the Bordeaux region.

In this privileged location, the grapes reach excellent maturation and the resulting wine is more complex.
