Cadillac – Day 3

Just south of Cadillac, cooler water flows from the Ciron  into the Garonne and creates this foggy mist. This mist floats over the vineyards in the mornings and dissipates in the afternoon. This flux between humidity and warmth are perfect conditions for “noble rot” which gives Sauternes, like the wines of Château De Myrat, which we visited, their intense flavors and sweetness.

The town of Cadillac is pretty sleepy, yet nice. We saw some very quaint sidewalk “porches” (you had better like your neighbors).
