Description

Léon Verhaeghe from Morsleede in Flanders, left his native country in the early 20th century to settle in south-western France. His son Charles together with his wife Marie-Thérèse started a farm with mixed cultures in 1958 planting some vines on the property and adding one hectare of vineyards in three different plots every year. While still distilling lavender, Charles bottled his first wine in 1973. His sons, Jean-Marc and Pascal belong to the second generation. A passionate aficionado of motorcycles, Pascal rediscovered the vineyard while visiting a friend in Burgundy, Jean-Marie Guffens in 1980.“During the “Route du Bol d’Or”, a motorcycle race, I just stopped to salute Jean-Marie… I stayed several days and did my first real harvest.”

TASTING NOTES
A fine perfume of cassis, blackberries and blueberries mixed with yellow peach and mango. A touch of iris and daffodil flowers gives the wine an elegant, floral character. On the palate, fresh fruit juice from nose-scented black fruits enriched with lemon peel and white pepper.

FOOD PAIRING
Cahors is excellent with lighter cuts of beef, Cassoulet, mushrooms, Roast Duck, Duck Confit, Roast Lamb, Roast Pork, Blue Cheese, Couscous, and Turkey.
