Winner of three gold medals in France - the name of this cuvee is derived from the ancient name of the fields outside Chateau Cadillac…"Champs du Bout du Monde" or fields at the end of the world.
This 100% Merlot Rosé has a vivid red velvet hue and an attractive floral nose of violets and roses, with raspberry and blackberry fruit. On the palate the wine is well structured, smooth and balanced with supple elegant tannins... and a hint of spice. The fruit is fresh and lively and also generous, with flavours of summer berries. A composed and elegant wine that can be consumed all year round.
The winemaking, which is supervised by M. Stephane RENIE, is focused on making traditional Right Bank wines based on the Merlot grape which is capable of creating the most hedonistic opulent and decadent wine tasting experiences. Merlot began earning its reputation for producing quality wine on the Right Bank back in the 1780s and the highest priced wines of Bordeaux today are still based on Merlot and Merlot blends.
Merlot perfectly expresses the terroir at Chateau Cadillac, home of Domaine Serisier, where the objective is to create wines that are fruity, round and elegant.
Made from Merlot grapes the terroir is comprised of ideal, free draining clay and limestone soils over a deep bedrock of limestone. Situated on a plateau at an altitude of 55 metres it is perfectly situated with maximum exposure to the sun for ripening of the grapes.

"The nose has a mix of red fruits fresh redcurrant and cranberry and the start of the palate is bright. Richer in the middle depth of flavour wild strawberry backed by mulberry but it finishes with freshness length of flavor.
