THE TERROIR :
«SANDY CLAY et CLAY-LIMESTONE »
A.O.C. BORDEAUX

The Sauvignon used for the Château du Cros Bordeaux Sauvignon grows on a reddish and tan colored clay surface soil with limestone subsoil bringing freshness and fineness to the wine.
The Bordeaux rosé made from cabernet franc situated in well-drained soil allows the expression of the fruit in these wines, which is much sought after.

The Merlot grape variety from the “Chateau du Cros red” AOC Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux grows on the same soil. It brings some fruits and roundness to the wine while the Cabernet is more on the tannins and the structure.
In Paillet town, (12km North of Loupiac), we product two red cuvées AOC Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux at the “Château Clos Bourbon”. The soil is very unusual, limestone on the top with iron Schist in the subsoil. Once blend, the wine has a great typicality with pepper and spicy aromas on the nose and licorice on the mouth.
