The opinion of the sommelier

Cahors is the birthplace of Malbec and still produces the purest wines from this now widely known grape variety. Not far from Cahors, Calicôt comes from vineyards growing along the bank of the Lot, a humid terroir that gives fruitier wines with the extra freshness that makes it easy to drink and to appreciate at any time. 

 

Terroir

Fully replanted in the 70s, the vines are now old enough to express all the fullness of the clay-limestone soil. Concerned with the environment, the winemaker Valérie Roussille implemented reasoned viticulture techniques. On each plot, yields are adapted and controlled to obtain perfectly ripe and healthy grapes.

lecepage Grape variety

Malbec, the most famous grape variety of the region, blooms on the gravelly and sandy soils of the Southwest. It as well likes large temperature gaps between day and night, a phenomenon that it also found in the Andes in Argentina where it became the main black grape variety. Blended with other grape varieties, it brings to the wine its structure, its complexity, and a ripe fruitiness.

lemillesime Vintage

2016 is an amazing vintage ! Spring was hot and dry, allowing premature flowering; the grapes could ripen quickly and well. Summer remained in the same style, warm and sunny, which has created superb grape berries giving juicy wines with a taste of ripe fruit. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

We are very proud to present this wine from the Domaine Clos du Chêne, a family estate now ma-naged by Valérie, daughter of Marie-Françoise and Jean-Paul, who leads a sustainable viticulture that respects the environment. Experts of Malbec, they produce Cahors wines as well as alternative Malbec like Calicôt which allow them to elaborate all styles of Malbec wines.
