The Cadillac appellation was created in 1972. Specifications call for entirely hand picked grapes and sales restricted to wine in bottles. About 80% of the grapes are botrytised*, and the wine is fermented either in vat or in barrel. Château Manos is aged in barrels in Lamothe's underground cellars.
Château Manos has a beautiful golden colour, remarkable finesse, and a touch of acidity that gives balance and character to the wine, which features aromas of honey, spice, and citrus. It is an ideal aperitif or a delight with foie gras, and also goes beautifully with white meats and desserts that are not overly sweet (ageing potential: up to 15 years).
