Winemaker's note

Gérard Bertrand reveals the history of the great terroirs of the South of France, and especially of the southwest, with the iconic Cahors appellation. The year 1152 was marked by a historic union between France and England. Henry Plantagenet, the future king of England, opened London up to the entire world.

Winegrower's note

The work begins with a selection of the best suited plots to grow this type of wine, in limestone soils and on gravelly terraces. The grapes are harvested mechanically, using a machine fitted with a destemmer that separates the harvested grapes from the stems. The winemaking process is traditional, and the grapes are destalked before the maceration phase, which lasts 10 days. A light pump-over is carried out regularly and the temperature is controlled during this stage. The wine is aged for a year in a concrete tank.

Tasting notes

Dark red in colour with purple-blue hues, this wine features an intense nose with notes of dark berries and violet. Structured with silky tannins, this vintage has a nice roundness and a finish with notes of blackcurrant and liquorice.

Food and Wine Pairing

Serve at 16°C with grilled meat or sauce-based dishes.
