Château Laubès


Château Laubès is located in the village of Escoussans, near Cadillac, on the right bank of the Garonne. The vineyard is spread over the south and southwest-facing hillsides overlooking the Garonne, making the most of the sunshine and the good soil drainage. The various plots benefit from the variety of soil conditions on these hillsides, giving the wine all its personality. Cadillac is an ancient walled town in the heart of the Entre-Deux-Mers region, populated since the 10th century by the monks who cleared the hillsides and planted the vineyards.
The region is rich in history and heritage, including the famous La Sauve Majeure abbey, built in the 12th century. The terroir and hillsides of Cadillac have always been known for their fruity, refined, delicate, lively sweet wines. The combination of these elements with the influence of the Garonne allow the Sémillon grapes to develop Botrytis Cinerea, the noble rot, like the famous Sauternes region on the left bank. Produced solely from very old Semillon vines, and fermented in new French wood barrels.
