Description

The Cayx Palace is a residence of the Danish Royal Family located in the wine district of Cahors in southern France. In medieval times the castle formed part of the defences of the town of Luzech due to its dominance of the Lot River. Chateau De Cayx is a 7-hectare estate owned by the Prince Of Denmark. La Cigaralle comes from the 4 hectares of Chardonnay planted, mostly on the limestone terraces around the château. “Cigaralle” is an old word probably from Catalan and used in Aquitaine and Occitaine to describe a pavilion built in a park or a pleasure garden where you can hear the song of cicadas.
