Our Vineyard

 

Our vineyard has the originality to contain into its 50 hectares all the types of soil that makes the Cahors. On the terraces of the Lot, the vineyard is made of subsoil composed of old alluvium and limestone plateau with clay and marl.

Composed of 85% of Malbec and 15% of Merlot, the vine stocks of the Pineraie are on the 2nd and 3rd terraces and on the limestone plateau. A dozen hectares are placed on the commune of Lacapelle Cabannac. The lower parts of the vineyard are clay while the higher parts are clay, limestone and hard flint.

 

Yield is set for each patch to get ripe and healthy grape, thus getting the best from the land.

 

We especially care about the quality control, that's why we chose Controlled Cultivation.
Pesticides are applied according to a weekly statistical parasite count and wheather forecast.

 

Thinking about the quality means protecting nature and the health and the security of people.
