Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and well-rounded

Crimson color with some black reflections. Open nose of blackcurrant syrup, boxwood, pepper, some animal notes, good balance on a full-bodied and fleshy wine, nice well-signed character that is refined compared to the nose with candied black fruits, fresh spices, cooked prune, the tannins are ripe, good length, frank and distinctive.




Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Domain and appellation

  • Château Lacapelle Cabanac

    Acquired in 2001 by two Parisians (Thierry Simon & Philippe Vérax) and immediately converted to organic farming, the estate now covers 29 hectares. The vines are planted on limestone scree coated with decalcification clay dating back to the Kimmeridgian era. With an altitude of about 300 metres, the estate benefits from a different climate than in the Lot valley, which is more favourable to the expression of the fruit. Aged for a minimum of 6 months in concrete vats.
