AOC Cahors. This wine is entirely produced from a limestone and clayey plot
situated at the foot of the Château. This very special terroir oriented
towards the river and benefiting from a full southern exposure was partly
replanted in 2002. A fairly high density of plantation (6,600 vines/ha)
favours a reduced yield per vine and the production of grapes of better
100% Malbec. The grapes are handpicked.
Vinification, fermentation and 18-months’ ageing in new oak barrels.
This special cuvée is produced only in the finest years. The vintages
currently offered for sale are 1998 and 2000.
This wine presents a dark and profound robe, a spicy nose, and in the mouth
reveals great concentration, power and amplitude. Like the finest growths,
it expresses, with elegance, the very essence of its terroir.
