This region consists of limestone plateaux at around 100m above sea level, hence its name "Bordeaux's high country". Wines of the Bordeaux Supérieur appellation are produced the vineyard zone of the Gironde. The wines must conform to rigorous quality criteria and are made from grapes from selected vineyard parcels and older vines. The red Bordeaux Supérieur is characterised by great aromatic complexity combining ripe fruits, floral aromas, spice and often a hint of oak.

Château Cast is situated in Jugazan and belongs to Mrs Catherine Belloc. The vineyard , dating from 1987, is near to Rauzan, which for many years belonged to the English, until the end of the Hundred Years' War. The fortress of Rauzan, a symbol of these medieval wars, was built in the 13th century then restored in the Gothic style after the Hundred Years' War.
