  • Vineyard The vineyard is planted in a superb silty-clay terroir ideal for wine growing. The vines are located on the third terraces of the Cahors valley and its density is extremely high with 6666 vines/ha. On those vineyards, we selected the best rows. Vines aged 30 years to produce the best malbec of Cahors.
  • Vinification The grapes are picked by hand with the greatest of care and sorted after destemming. Winemaking is done according to the highest standards. The grapes are macerated at 8°C for 3 days prior to fermentation. Pigeage (punching down the cap) and pumping over guarantee good extraction of tannin and color. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel, where the wine is slowly aged for 24 months.
