Chateau Les Croisille is part of a new wave of producers in Cahors. Silice is all from hand-harvested grapes grown on a rare combination of silica-rich red clay and iron soils on the Luzech plateau. Only around 5% of the appellation enjoys such a soil profile. The vines here are around 30 years-old. Destemmed, the resulting wine aged in a combination of older barriques and concrete tanks for 18 months before bottling. The wine is bright, with aromas of raspberry, cherry, blackcurrant and crushed stone. On the palate the wine has vibrant acidity with soft tannins and bold fruit.
