Production information

Producer: Chateau du Caillau

Philippe Bernede is a renaissance man whose interests include cooking, aviation and a few inventions. But winegrowing is his passion and it shows in the quality of his Malbec. The domaine has been in his family for generations and is planted with the traditional grape of Cahors: Cot (AKA Malbec). While some continue to make dark tannic wines - the Black Wines of Cahors - Philippe favours more a modern, fruit-forward style. If you think only Argentina can produce amazing Malbec, think again.

Production note

All the grapes are de-stemmed and crushed before fermentation in stainless steel vats. Each grape variety is fermented separately. After second fermentation, 50% of the wine is transferred to oak barrels. The wine is bottled un-fined and unfiltered.
