Château de Cayx vin de Cahors AOC
vinification vins visites tarifs

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 quality.

Grape varietals and harvesting:
100% Malbec. The grapes are handpicked.

Vinification and upbringing:
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.

Tasting notes:
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.

Each vintage reproduces on its label one of the seventeen tapestries made by the Manufacture des Gobelins in Paris and offered to Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II on the occasion of her fiftieth birthday. This collection of tapestries illustrates the history of the Kings of Denmark from the year 1000 AD to this day.
