About the Winery
Château LamartineThe 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.
Decanter World Wine Awards
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
