Bérangeraie’s top cuvée, Mathis Bacchus comes from 35yo vines planted in Jurassic limestones and marls on the hillsides of Floressas. Vinified in tank, it was then transferred to new oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and bottled after fining but no filtration after a three years élevage. Top Malbec!

Notes on the producer

Run by the exceptionally hard-working Bérenger family, the domaine is in the hands of Maurin, his wife Marlène (both oenologists), sister Juline and her husband Henri who have diplomas in viticulture. Dynamic doesn't quite go far enough to describe the Bérenger's work. In the vineyards they plough, leaf-thin and debud to produce low yields. They are also one of the only domaines in Cahors where all the vines are hand-harvested. Hand-harvesting is four times more expensive than machine harvesting, but it prolongs the life of the vine and is the only way to ensure the quality of every grape that goes into the fermentation vat.
