Château Pineraie ‘Cuvée Authentique’, Cahors 2016

The vineyards for the Athentique from Pineraie lie on the highest terraces of the lot. 

5 hectares of sustainably-managed vines averaging 60 years' age, the oldest of which were planted in 1920. These old vines, combined with the gravelly and siliceous sandy clay soils contribute a great deal of character to this hefty wine.  The resulting crop is fermented at 30 degrees and vatted for a month before ageing in oak casks for 18 months, 60 - 70% of which is new oak.

Attractive leafy notes, dark fruits giving a fresher style.

ABV 13%
