Brand Chateau Manos

The Néel-Chombart family, owners of Château Lamothe in the hilltop commune of Haux, took over the management of the neighboring Château Manos in 1991. While much of the region's vines were destroyed by the frost of 1956, some higher altitude parcels above the frost line were spared. The old vine Sémillon parcel was among them. 

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 70% of Château Manos grapes are botrytised and the wine is fermented in vats or barrels in the underground limestone cellars of Château Lamothe. This Sémillon 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.
