Light red color, strong nose, light woody smell with slight hint of liquorice and little red smashed fruits. Strong but not harsh taste. Matures very well.
Chateau Lamartine Lamartine
A family estate originating from Gallo-Romaine era, this traditional vineyard is located on the terraces of the Lot valley. In 1878 the Phylloxera attack destroyed it. From 1920, Edouard Sérougne, Alain Gayraud’s grandfather, courageous and persistent re-organized the vineyard thanks to some Malbec stocks that survived. From 1930 onwards, at a time when the wine region was recovering, he then went on to motivate his few remaining colleagues to found the first union to defend the wines of Cahors. He also became one of the group of 15 who revived the “Confrérie des vins de Cahors”.
