Cadillac-Cotes de Bordeaux

Four of the five Bordeaux Côtes have created a new, simpler AOC/appellation in a bid to make their wines easier for the consumer to understand. 

In a decision which would streamline Bordeaux’s 57 appellations, the new AOC, comprising

  • Côtes de Blaye
  • Côtes de Castillon
  • Côtes de Franc
  • Premiere Côtes de Bordeaux

together will be called Côtes de Bordeaux.

Cotes de Bourg decided to remain outside of this unified system.

Premieres Côtes de Bordeaux became known as Cadillac-Côtes de Bordeaux.

The Cotes de Bordeaux-Blaye, Bourg, Côtes de Castillon; Côtes de Francs and Premiere Côtes de Bordeaux all have a long history of wine production.  The wines will generally have more character than a straight Bordeaux A0C and provide great value.

Cadillac is an historic fortified market town on the north bank of the tidal Garonne river, upstream (south-east) of Bordeaux. Sweet white wines made from botrytis affected semillon and savignon blanc predominate.
