Wine Enthusiast loves our Malbec Tradition 2014

This wine, with its black fruits and still-firm tannins, is crisp with intense acidity as well as black-currant fruitiness. Its ripe structure suggests the ability to age a little longer, and the wine will be best from 2018. » Lire la suite »

Prestige 2012 - young and serious!

This is a powerful wine, full of dark fruits and dense dry tannins. Even at four-years-old, it is still young. It is impressive in its concentration with fine acidity and black-plum flavors mingling with the tannins. Drink this serious wine from 2018. » Lire la suite »

Here you are in the heart of the Cahors appellation, to discover the origin of the famous grape variety Malbec. Let yourself be guided towards rare and intense delight. The Château Haut-Monplaisir, situated at La Capelle-Cabanac opens its doors, and you are more than welcome.

When we took over this family property of 15 hectares in 1998, we had the ambition to create a genuine range of wines and to set up our own sales network step by step. Being autodidacts, driven by an urge for learning and being backed up by renowned technicians, we have taken our time to observe our terroir, to understand our soils and plants in order to extract the essence of our grapes. And while always remaining autonomous, we have approached Pascal and Jean-Marc Verhaeghe (Château du Cèdre), two of the greatest “creators of Malbec” in the world.

Observe our terroirs to understand our soils and plants, in order to draw the very best from our fruits.

A successful collaboration, which allowed us to affirm with accuracy the style of each of our cuvees. After having decided to put cover growth in between the vines and totally ban the use of herbicides, we logically entered into conversion towards organic farming for the entire property. Started at our arrival at Château Haut-Monplaisir, this conversion is now accomplished. Today our estate covers nearly 30 hectares of vines.

To fully experience the Cahors Malbec, we invite you to discover our history and our estate, to understand our terroirs, to savour our nectars…, to share our passion.

Enjoy your visit.
