  • Vineyard « Le Gouleyant » (in French, it means easy to drink) is a selection of the best Malbecs grown on the highest gravely and clay terraces of the Cahors Appellation, situated between the large loops of the Lot River, in the Southwest of France. Its taste is very typical of the Malbec variety whose birthplace is Cahors for more than 2000 years. It is the French Original Malbec.
  • Vinification This wine is made according to the method called “Ni Ni”: neither too hot, neither too cold, neither too long, neither too short (Ni in French means neither). It means that the temperature or fermentation is kept between 25°C and 28°C (less than for the other red usually made around 32°C). The time of fermentation is about 14 days (longer than for a light red, but shorter than a traditional Cahors fermented between 18 to 24 days). This is the way to get a red wine with very fruity aromatic characters and soft tannins, “un vin gouleyant” (easy to drink wine).
