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.
The climate we have in Cahors is mostly oceanic with some Mediterranean influences. Furthermore, the topography and the influences from the river Lot create a temperate micro-climate. In addition, we experienced really sunny and warm late autumn, with hot winds coming from Spain. Those conditions are very successful for Malbec maturity.
We have many different grape varieties in our estate: Malbec, distinctive of Cahors area, Chardonnay, Viognier, Loin de l’Oeil, Petit Manseng for our Monplaisir Blanc, and Cabernet Franc and Merlot for our Monplaisir Rosé.
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.
