This project started in 1999 when Matthieu and Catherine took over 5 hectares of old vines of Malbec in Cahors. They’ve since grown to 15 hectares and produce 5 different Malbec wines from single vineyards. Passionate and perfectionists, Matthieu and Catherine are redefining the style of the Cahors appellation with wines that are the antithesis of the rustic style the region is sometimes known for. The winemaking is precise and creates elegant, smooth and vibrant wines that truly express their terroir, and have incredible ageing potential.
