Dominated by Malbec, its color is dark red, almost black. Its powerful nose evokes aromas of red fruits. On the palate, the soft and fruity attack is dominated by notes of ripe cherries. In the final, the tannins are present but well-rounded and velvety.

Description

1/2 Le Gouleyant » (in French, it means easy to drink) is a selection of the best Malbec grown on the highest gravely and clayey terraces of the Appellation Cahors, situated between the large loops of the Lot River, in the Southwest of France. Its taste is very typical of the malbec variety whose birthplace is Cahors for more than 2000 years. It is the French Original Malbec. This very crispy wine is made according to the method called “Ni Ni”: neither too hot, neither too cold, neither too long, neither too short (Ni in French means neither). It means that the temperature or fermentation is kept between 25°C and 28°C (less than for the other red usually made around 32°C, but more that for white and rose, around 18°C). The time of fermentation is about 14 days (longer than for a light red, but shorter than a traditional Cahors fermented between 18 to 24 days). This is the way to get a red wine with very fruity romatic characters and soft tannins, “un vin gouleyant” (easy to drink wine).

Winemaking:

The wines are made traditionally in stainless steel tanks from very ripe grapes. But to get the character "Gouleyant" tannins, they are fermented at temperatures around 25 ° C with maceration time not exceeding 8-10 days.

The Soils:

The Gouleyant is the result of a wine assembled from the major terroirs of Cahors vineyards: the Causse du Quercy plateau clay and limestone located 350 meters above sea level and exposed to strong temperature fluctuations. The Lot valley dug in the limestone plateau by the river where were formed gravelly hills clay-siliceous.
