Clos La Coutale, a 60 hectares estate, spreads over a stretch of land on the alluvial floor of the valley amid the meanders of the river Lot. It's soil is particularly suitable for vines, for it contains gravel, silicates and limestone clays.
Because of the lie of the land, facing south-west, the estate is sheltered from the cold winds that blow from the "Causse" region (an upland plateau), and consequently it enjoys a micro-climate which ensures that the vines and their fruit ripen fully early in the season. Their Cahors is made up of Malbec, locally known as "Cot" and Merlot. Malbec accounts for 80% of the blend; their thick skin, deep pigment and tannins contribute to the wine's ageability. The other 20% is Merlot that softens Malbec's harsh edges and improves the bouquet.
Astonishing elegance, red fruit with spicy overtones. A well-constructed wine. Clos La Coutale can be drunk young thanks to its good fruit, but has great ageing potential, between 10-20 years.
