About Château Paradis Casseuil:
Château Paradis Casseuil gets its name from the combination of the cadastral name of the main parcel of vineyards called "Vines of Paradise" and the district of Casseuil.
Château Paradis Casseuil is a former dependence of Château Rieussec. It also underwent Rieussec’s troubled
history in the 20th century. Taken under Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite)’s wing in 1984, Château Paradis Casseuil’s cellars are located
in the heart of the vineyard located in Sainte-Foy-la-Longue.
The Château Paradis Casseuil cellars, located in Sainte-Foy-la-Longue are used to vinify the red wines. White wines are vinified at Château Rieussec,
benefiting from the same modern technical instruments used for the Grand Vin Château Rieussec.
The vineyard is located in the three districts of Casseuil,
Caudrot, and Sainte-Foy-la-Longue in the appellation
Entre-Deux-Mers. There are 23 hectares (57.5 acres)
of vines including 17 hectares of red varietals on claylimestone
soil at Caudrot and Ste-Foy, and clay and gravel soil at Casseuil.
The red varietals are 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% of Cabernet Franc. And the white varietals
are 60% of Semillion, 20% of Muscadelle and 20% of Sauvignon blanc.
The wines of Château Paradis Casseuil are bottled in
spring without ageing in oak barrels. This allows the wines to keep their freshness and the fruit. They can be enjoyed within 2 to 3 years after harvest.
