The passionate work of a vinegrower-winemaker family, on this really clayey, low lime terroir that is predestined to vinegrowing, transforms the noble Malbec grapes to give an atypical Cahors in a very personal style. Château de Haute-Serre is recognisable by its deep ruby robe that is always clear and shiny. In addition to the, often candied, red fruit are nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla and roasted bean aromas from new barrels. On the palate the tannins are velvety, very refined and dense.
There is an even coating of fruit to the characteristic Château de Haute-Serre silky tannic framework, giving a velvety mouthfeel. Fruit, the finesse of the tannins and its length in the mouth make Château de Haute-Serre one of the rare Cahors that will give pleasure at tasting just as much from its first years in the bottle as after long ageing.
Grape: Malbec (85%), Merlot (13%), Tannat (2%)
