The Château Lamartine stands at the extremely west side of the Cahors Appellation, on the oldest Lot Valley’s terraces. On those terroirs of clay and limestone, the 37 hectares look at the South which guarantees a perfect maturity to the Malbec.
For four generations, the Gayraud family gives the greatest care to the wine-growing as the wine-making. This is the key to get the purest expression from the terroirs. In 2016, Alain and Brigitte give the hand to their children:
« Our brother and sister tandem is our strength, our terroirs are our wealth.
Our idea: Making tipical wines from Cahors appellation wich combine sincerity, balanced and freshness. »
