CHATEAU LAMARTINE 2009 BENJAMIN CAHORS

Today, Alain Gayraud is a dedicated wine-maker producing relatively small quantities (200,000 bottles) of world-class wine.The Lamartine estate was built over a former oak forest and according to legend is the place where Martine, a local girl, used to rendez-vous with her lovers.

A 32 hectare family estate, this traditional vineyard is located at Soturac on the terraces of the Lot valley at the extreme western edge of the Cahors appellation. This location, with a micro-climate influenced by the Atlantic, contributes to the early maturation of the grapes and consequently ensures the regularity of the vintages.80% Malbec, 20% Merlot, a superb deep cherry color; this wine exhales a complexity of surprising aromas and a combinaison of smooth and liquoriced fruits. After a smooth attack this wine takes its entire dimension with round, fleshy and elegant tannins which also offer a complex and charming range of aromas.
