Clos La Coutale | Cahors

Clos La Coutale Winery and Buildings in Cahors, South West France

Founded over 100 years ago, Clos La Coutale is one of the finest producers in Cahors. Philippe Bernard is the sixth generation of his family to oversee this 50-hectare estate, situated just a few hundred yards from the Lot River, west of the town of Cahors. The Clos is divided into two adjacent parcels, each distinct, in what looks like a natural amphitheatre. The higher of the two parcels is glacial moraine, shallow, rocky soil, well-drained and sun-drenched, while the lower parcel is alluvial gravel. The wine blend is 70% Malbec (known locally as Auxerrois), the traditional grape of the region, blended with 15% Merlot which gives finesse and bouquet and 15% Tannat which gives it its ageing potential. The grapes are vinified separately in stainless steel vats and the wine is then matured in a combination of small barriques and larger wooden foudres for 12 months before being bottled unfiltered.
