Château Pineraie "Cuvée des Dames" Cahors

Just 2 hours east of Bordeaux, Cahors produces some of the best Malbec wines you will find. France has been making Malbec long before Argentina and Cahors produces more structured Malbec wines. Cahors is required to be made of at least 70% Malbec, but many producers add Merlot to add some plumpness and richness.

Best value from Cahors!!

Château Pineraie, a vineyard of 50 hectares, is located in Puy-L’Evêque, near Cahors. Six generations of the Burc family have cared for this vineyard. The sisters, Anne and Emmanuelle, the current generation to oversee Château Pineraie, work together to carry on a wonderful family history, always with a strong will to fulfill their commitment to an ever improving quality. We believe that the diversity of our vineyard’s soils is one of the most significant assets of our wines. Little wonder that Cahors is the cradle of the Malbec grape.
