retained the tradition of Cahors wine. The priests knew how to carefully select the best
soil and produce the greatest wine.
Spread over 35 hectares of alluvial terraces with chalky/clay soil, the Château de
Caminade is in the heart of Cahors wine country. Sheltered behind the hills that protect
it from the cold, the vine grows in it's favorite soil.
The mixture of grapes; 70% Auxerrois, 25% Merlot and 5% Tannat. A fine wine with great
elegance and complexity is created through judicious mixing. The geographical situation
and microclimate of this vineyard allows each grape variety to reach ideal maturation for
the harvest with no risk of autumn frost.
The wine making process starts once the grapes have been harvested. Fermentation and
maceration in stainless steel vats for 20 to 27 days at a strictly controlled temperature.
The wine is then matured and aged in stainless steel vats which give the wine it's
complicated bouquet and it's rounded, mellow tannins.

vinification combine to produce once of the very best Cahors wines.
