For five centuries, from father to son, the Couture family cultivate their vineyards at
Albas with passion. Jean and Claude's forefather was a winegrower for the landlord of
Albas in 1470. For five centuries Cahors wine bathed in glory; tasted at the Tsars' table
in Russia and by the Kings of both England and France. Five centuries of tradition,
expertise and constant, tender loving care have made Château Eugénie one of the jewels
in Cahors' crown.
From the vine to the glass
Throughout the year the vines are cared for to make sure that quality prevails in the
resulting wine. Once the harvest in October is over, the wine is matured for a long time
in the traditional way, in stainless steel vats for 2 weeks at a constant temperature. The
wine is then matured in oak barrels for one or two years. Only then will the wine find
it's way to the tables of the finest connoisseurs.
