Château Paradis Casseuil

Domaine Barons de Rothschild

Château Paradis Casseuil holds its name from the land registry, where the main parcel of vines is known as “Les vignes du Paradis” – vines of Paradise. Casseuil is the name of the district. Perhaps the name is it because of its bucolic location, nestled on the hills overlooking the Garonne river and surrounded by beautiful forest. No one knows why such a heavenly name was given to the property, but the team has fully committed itself to honour it. Château Paradis Casseuil formerly belonged to Château Rieussec. When purchasing the first classified growth of Sauternes in 1984, Baron Eric de Rothschild didn’t hesitate to add this jewel of the Entre-Deux-Mers to the deal. The vineyard of Paradis Casseuil was extended in 1989 to become one of the leading properties of the region.

TERROIR

Nestled amidst the rolling hills of Sainte Foy la Longue, in the heart of Entre-deux-Mers, Château Paradis Casseuil offers an elegant expression of Merlot, which is particularly suited to its chalky-clay and fossil-rich limestone soils. It is blended with Carbernet Sauvignon coming from well exposed gravel slopes.
