Cuvée presentation

This Cahors combines freshness of flavor and well-blended tannins, with a lovely, refined structure. It can be aged for a year or two, in order to further develop its intense aromas of red and black fruits. Produced from clay-limestone soil, which lends it at once freshness and depth, this wine is matured in old, 500 litre barrels for one year.

Information about domain Château Combel La Serre

Julien Ilbert, owner of Château Combel La Serre, embodies a new generation of young winemakers in Cahors. Like many others, the domaine's revival came in the form of its conversion to organic viticulture (certification was obtained in 2015). In the manner of traditional farming families, the property's grapes would be sold to the cooperative along with other agricultural products. Only in 1998 did Julien and his father begin to bottle their wines themselves, and strangely enough, in Burgundy bottles! Although the Cahors appellation requires you to use only 70% Malbec, Julien Ilbert prefers to produce his wines exclusively using this characterful variety. A jewel of the South-West!
