Chateau Les Croisille is part of a new wave of producers in Cahors. La Pierre comes from a parcel of 35 year old vines grown at an altitude of 300 metres of the Luzech plateau on a bed of Siderolithic limestone. To emphasis this further, the wine is aged using an unprecedented technique; raised in a hand-carved 10-hectolitre vat of limestone, sourced in the Lot valley. This unusual vessel resembles a mausoleum rather than a storage vessel for wine. The wine has delicate red fruit aromas with riper notes of cherry drops and blackcurrants. On the palate the wine is superbly balanced with silky tannins and a beautiful purity of fruit.
