Winemaker's Notes:

Chateau Gautoul is a deeply colored, generous wine with ripe tannins and ample body. Its accessible flavors of cassis, blackberry, truffles and spice make it a great expression of its unique and venerable appellation.
My Notes:

About Gautoul:

The "pays de Quercy" is known for the bridge in Cahors Valentré, imposing fortified bridge spanning the Lot, but also to the antiquity of its wine history. The wines of Cahors existed since the sixth century, and were offered for sale at auction in London in 1225. The Chateau Gautoul is a beautiful seventeenth century-style chateau in perfect condition and has retained its authenticity. It offers breathtaking views of the village of Puy l'Eveque and the lot. The south-facing vineyard of clay and limestone soil makes it perfect for the maturity of the grapes typical of the controlled Cahors appellation.
