A history

As an oenologist specialising in Cahors wines, Hervé Froment uses his extensive expertise to guarantee the unique character of each carefully harvested grape from our oldest Malbec vines (over 40 years old) planted on the best terroirs of the Valley terraces and the Causse (limestone plateau). This wine is the result of the highest standards at every stage of production, from grape to bottle.

Tasting notes

colour, nose, mouth

It is a very deep purple colour with black tints. The bouquet is intense, smoky with dark berries, blackcurrant, blueberry, the spiciness of bergamot and pepper with vanilla and violet. Finally there are notes of cocoa and liquorice. In the mouth it is full and fresh, fruity-spicy, peppery, with a balanced structure of polished tannins with a roasted, toasted (empyreumatic) and liquorice finish.
