Chateau Manos

"The NĂ©el-Chombart family, owners of Chateau Lamothe in the hilltop commune of Haux, took over the management of the neighboring Chateau Manos in 1991. This sister property provides the family with the opportunity to craft the lauded sweet wines of the Cadillac appellation, which was established in 1973 and takes its name from 16th century explorer Antoine de Lamothe de Cadillac, founder of the city of Detroit, Michigan where the legendary Cadillac is made. Sandwiched between the right bank of the Garonne River and the calcareous cliffs of the Entre Deux Mers plateau, Cadillac benefits from a local micro-climate ideal for sweet wine production. In the fall, the river gives rise to early morning humidity, which gradually dries up throughout the day; conditions that are particularly conducive to the development of molds that eventually turn into noble rot.

About 80% of Chateau Manos grapes are botrytised and the wine is fermented in vats or barrels in the underground limestone cellars of Chateau Lamothe. This semillon dominant blend has a luminous golden color, remarkable finesse, and enticing aromas and flavors of honey, citrus and spice. A lively acidity serves as the backbone of the wine and ensures an aging potential of up to 15 years."

EMPIRE STAFF REVIEW

A $10 Steal!!

"Starting with a bright golden color and a nose and palate of honey, spices, and lemon, this is sweet yet still refreshing. The finish has vanilla, stone fruit, brown sugar, and loads of acidity for balance. A beautiful display of what an elegant sweet wine should be."
