This is made from fruit that doesn't make the estate range and also bought fruit from the greater southwest area. Sees no oak.
This is the soft and juicy side of Malbec with mulberry and damson fruit flecked with violet and sweet spice. The usual Cahor tannins are melted away into the pluch fruit and this is made to drink young and in fron of a fire. Great examlpe of what the southwest can do at this level when given a little care and attention. PWS
100% Malbec from purchased fruit grown on the 1st and 2nd terraces close to the river. The fruit is 100% de-stemmed and crushed, then the juice given a 3-4 day cold soak, to extract colour and a little tannin, before being pressed and cool-fermented in stainless steel. Matured in concrete tanks for 6-8 months. 'This shows the soft, juicy side of Malbec. No serious tannins here, just red berry fruit and fine acidity. That means it's ready to drink this winter.' is widely regarded as the leading estate in Cahors. Brothers Pascal and Jean-Marc Verhaeghe, both qualified oenologists, can trace its history back to their grandfather Léon who left his native Flanders to settle in south-west France in the early 1900s. In due course Léon’s son Charles and his wife Marie-Thérèse started a mixed farm in 1958 and began planting one hectare of vines in three different plots every year.
