FIRST DOMAINE - Chateau Plat Faisant
We start in the Cahors wine village of in Saint Vincent-Rive-d'Olt at Chateau Plat Faisant with winemakers Serge Bessieres and Caroline Dumond. The old family vineyard of 20 ha of Malbec with a little merlot—the traditional AOC Cahors blend. With some of the vines over 50 years old and low yields, 30hl/ha, and this is reflected in the depth of flavours. The wine reflects the loving care and attention both in the vineyard and in the winery. They are proud of their wines and why not—the quality is exceptional!

You wil delight at the vast display of wines and the range to be tasted. The winery and vineyard is situated on a south-facing bend of the river Lot, that is sheltered from the northerly winds. It is spread across limestone terraces on the slopes of the hill, leading down to the gravelly river. You will experience the difference between the vineyard on the plateau and those on the river flats and terraces.
