Description

Picked 2 to 3 times a day for 25 days of maceration, this carefully selected grape gives rise to aromas of Malbec of unequaled finesse. Breeding 100% in barrels between 12 and 18 months.

Tasting note

Epicurean wine par excellence, aromatically rich and powerful, it does honor to its Côt Noir grape variety. The robe is deep purple in keeping with the reputation and geome of Malbec. The nose offers aromas of vanilla and black fruits, which are prolonged and confirmed in the mouth. Bold wine that slowly balances out on the palate to conclude on a surprising and chocolate note.

Food pairing

It remains an ideal wine for a table full of game, as well as for laying down.

About the producer

The history of the estate takes its roots in the 14th century. On the strength of Molinié family heritage, in 1998, having obtained his diploma in viticulture & oenology,
Matthieu Molinié took over the family estate. His partner Virginie obtained the same diploma and joined him 2 years later. Today their estate covers 28 hectares of
vineyards in the Cahors appellation, with vines that are on average 25 years old.

The estate brings together all the great veins of the Cadurcien terroirs: limestone-marly plateaus, clay-limestone plateaus, siderolithic red clays, first, second and third
valley terraces, clays with rolled pebbles. The mode of management of the vineyard in organic conversion is part of a strong conviction: the development of the
particularity of each terroir. Cahors benefits from a dual climate: Oceanic until the month of June, it gently morphs to a Mediterranean climate in July, thus ensuring
perfect balance between acidity and maturity in the vineyard.
