Cahors: Chateau Leret Monpezat Grand Vin Red 2018

From £20.50
Per Bottle

Tasting Notes 

The large percentage of Malbec gives this wine all the characteristics of a classic Cahors. Located in the heart of the appellation, Château Leret Monpezat wines have a deep, rich colour of impressive density. Redolent of blackcurrant in its youth, it has plenty of body and good length, with the powerful tannins softened by well integrated oak from ageing in barrels.

Georges Vigouroux

Located along the Lot River on its meanders and slopes in Cahors, in the South West, Georges Vigouroux is operated by Bertrand-Gabriel Vigouroux, who combines tradition and the modern techniques of wine making, helping to respect the malbec vines.
The Chateau Leret Monpezat domain is situated on the plateau in a meander of the Lot river between Albas and Belave. The soil is composed of clay-limestone with tertiary alluvions. Made up from 90% Malbec and 10% Merlot, the vineyard was replanted between 1965 and 1975. It is led by pest management tools, leaf removal, green harvest, controlled yield and long maturation
The Vigouroux family pride themselves on their gastronomy, sharing, well-being. Self-enjoyment and discovery, which are highlighted in their wine making.
