Château Haut-Mouleyre is located in the village of Escoussans, on the right bank of the Garonne. The vineyard is spread over the south and southwest facing hillsides overlooking the River Garonne. The different plots enjoy a variety of soils which gives plenty of wines with different personalities.
Cadillac is an old fortified city in the heart of the Entre-Deux-Mers region, populated since the 10th century by the monks who cleared the hillsides and planted the vineyards. The region is rich in history and heritage, including the famous La Sauve Majeure abbey, built in the 12th century.
Various elements give the Château Haut-Mouleyre the potential for very high quality wines: the exposure and average age of the vineyards, the grape varieties, the soil and the diversity of the plots. Considerable work is done in the vineyards to ensure the best grapes and the optimum degree of maturity when they are harvested.
