While working as an oenologue in Provence, Valérie Courrèges was looking for an outstanding terroir with which to settle down, and in 2019, came across the perfect opportunity to settle in Cahors. Now based in the South West, Valérie tends 22 hectares of old vines rooted in a sublime terroir of clay and limestone.
Here is her 2020 baby, a deep, dark red blend, the grapes are fermented spontaneously, then aged in clay and concrete vats. The wine gets a somewhat floral taste due to the Malbec, and then the other grapes move the taste towards tartness and spicy density. Thus, you’ll find a fun and inviting wine. Try it with goulash, game, and creamy pasta.
