Chateau Pineraie Tradition Cahors is a red wine from south west France which is made predominantly from the Malbec grape variety. In Cahors Malbec is more usually known as Côt.

Jean-Luc Burc is the proprieter at Chateau Pineraie. The 37 hectare estate, which is located near Puy-l’Eveque in the north-west of the Cahors region, has been an established winemaking area  for centuries and has recently been elevated to Chateau status. A manuscript leather parchment, written in latin in 1456, proves the Burc family were already the land owners around Cahors at that time. All this is confirmed by deeds of vineyards from 1663 and 1838. Since then, generations of wine makers have followed down the family wine working the land, growing grapes and producing wine. Today the 5th and 6th generations work together – Jean-Luc Burc now shares the running of this 50 hectare estate daughters Anne and Emmanuelle.

Chateau Pineraie Tradition Cahors is a blend of Malbec with a little Merlot. By introducing 15% Merlot to blend with old vine Malbec, Jean-Luc Burc produces a style of Cahors with elegance and finesse. The vines, including some very old Malbec, are planted in clay-limestone soil which helps to keep yields naturally low. Fermentation is controlled at 30c with maceration on the skins from 2 – 3 weeks in stainless steel and frequent pumping over and aeration. The wine is then aged for one year in wood, 20% of which are new barrels. It’s only lightly filtered before bottling to preserve fruit quality and character.

Chateau Pineraie Tradition Cahors adheres to the Terra Vitis certification process and sustainable viticulture.

Tasting Notes

Intense cherry fruit, blackcurrant and lots of spicy oak. Characterful and complex with a moreish balance of attractive chalky tannins and acidity.

Food Pairing

Drink with red meats or pork in wine, cream or even peppercorn sauces and game. Mature hard cheeses work nicely, too!
