The Region:
The region of Cahors follows the Lot river north of Agen in the south west of France. The soils are limestone and iron oxide where the Cot (or Malbec) is most widely planted. Once famous for its `black` wines of huge extract and assertive tannins, modern Cahors has a more immediately appealing style, sometimes softened with an addition of Merlot.

The Producer:
The Roche family have cultivated vines since 1773. Currently the fourth generation cultivate the local variety `Cot` (or Malbec) on gravel and sand soils, perfect for this local speciality.

Tasting Notes:
Four generations of the Roche family have worked the vineyards at Château Croze de Pys, cultivating the local variety `Cot` (Malbec). A modern approach to a very traditional wine ensures a supple, balanced wine with red berry fruit and a touch of oak spice rather than the black tannic wines of yesteryear.

Food Pairings:
Serve with confit de canard, steak and kidney pudding and braised lamb shank.

Alcohol: 14%
