The highest of the Cahors vineyard's three terraces above the Lot valley has its stony soil with large pebbles. It produces the most structured of the three single-parcel wines from Triguedina. Complex and dark, it is juicy and sumptuous as well as solidly structured. Great acidity cuts through the opulent texture. It's a wine to age; drink from 2019.
