In 2019 Valérie Courrèges had the opportunity to buy a wine estate with extreme potential in her homeland of Cahors.
As a young winemaker Valérie always knew the great potential of the Cahors terroir, and this plot with it’s high quality old vines and first-rate clay and limestone soil provided her with the canvas she needed to create some very special wines.
Vinification: Vines are harvested by hand, and the grapes de-stemmed but not crushed. Fermentation takes place in concrete tanks using indigenous yeast with punch down & pumpover. The wine is matured for 24months in barrel before bottling.
