The 147-acre vineyard on a high chalk plateau in the east of Cahors was first planted in the Middle Ages. It has produced a structured, mineral wine, very textured and with firm, dusty tannins. Underneath the black currant fruits are developing and will give a fine juicy wine from 2019. Grands Vins de Seigneur is a group of growers who approve each other's wines.
