The origin of Château Lamartine goes back to 1883, when Lise and Benjamin’s great grand father acquired a piece of land and started to farm grapes and sell wine in barrels. The winery holds the 'Haute Valeur Environnementale' certificate in sustainability, and are right now in their third year of organic conversion.

The Cahors AOP is right in between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean sea. We could say that it’s the heart of the South West. Due to its geographic situation, the appellation has a particular microclimate, which is perfect for Malbec.

 A blend of 90% Malbec and 10% Tannat, the Cuvée Particulière uses grapes grown from old vines aged between 40 to 60 years old. An aromatic wine sporting rich, dark berry fruit tones of blackberries and bramble alongside more savoury notes of dried herbs and black liquorice. Wood ageing brings subtle spice notes and roundness to the palate. The tannins are present but polished with a juicy verve of acidity cutting through the dense fruit, which lingers on the finish. This wine has a solid backbone and some serious concentration! 

The structure present here will work for a variety of meats, including duck, goose and game as well as being a great match with cheese.

About the Winery

Château Lamartine

The Château Lamartine stands at the extremely west side of the Cahors Appellation, on the oldest of Lot Valley’s terraces. The terroir of the 37 hectares faces South on clay and limestone soils which guarantees a perfect maturity to the Malbec.

For four generations, the Gayraud family has given the greatest care to the vines as well as the wine-making. This is the key to get the purest expression from the terroirs.

Dark, aromatic nose with black fruit pudding, savoury black olive and smoked thyme. Dense and complexly layered palate opening up to juicy acidity and classy tannin. Very long and full of energy.

This is a ripe, polished wine. Wood aging brings a perfumed character to the bold black fruits from old vines. The wine has heft and richness while keeping a succulent character. This estate is situated in the west of the Cahors appellation on the north bank of the Lot River - Roger Voss
