ORGANIC CULTURE

To enhance the quality of our wines and to obtain the most tasteful expression of our terroirs, but also by personal conviction, we soon oriented our activity towards organic farming. First we focused on the soils by sewing cover grass between the rows of the vines.

TERROIR

Our vines are located on the 3rd terraces of the appellation (alt.200m). Vines are facing due south from sunrise to sunset.
Wines from our estate are a combination of powerful and fineness given by the soils mostly clayey-siliceous, with pebbles.

CAHORS'S WINES

Expressive and complex, the Malbec get its richness in our soils and thanks to the micro-climate, is able to reach excellent ripeness. From blackcurrant, to liquorice and ripen cherries, this grape variety allows us to make black wines full of richness and suppleness.
Every single vintage, we are doing our best to improve the quality of our wines.

Our flagship cuvée: L'Envie

It is an expressive and lively wine. After opening on blackcurrant, prunes and black olive, it evolves into a richer bouquet, with notes of rosemary and cinnamon. It is the freshness that dominates the mouth, accompanied by a beautiful tannic structure, dense and fine. A pleasant sweetness, as much taste as it is aromatic, accompanies the wine on its long finish, with surprising notes of elderflower and peppermint. Still young, he will love grilled lamb chops, a squash, mushroom and Parmesan risotto … Later, he will appreciate red meat in sauce as much as refined vegetarian cuisine. Drink now or keep for a few years.
