Chateau Caminade la Commandery Cahors 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"This wine comes from the best parcels in the La Caminade vineyard. Typically it is from parcels of old vines growing on the 'third terrace', but the final selection is made after the fermentations have occurred. For this cuvee, the Ressès try to use exclusively Auxerrois (Malbec)although sometimes a small amount of tannat is blended for complexity.. Fermentation temperature is controlled and maceration is extended to five weeks, M. Ressès has devised a system that allows for very gentle pumping of the juice over the cap. The wine is aged in oak barrels, typically one third new, for one year. The result is a deep and concentrated wine that typifies the Quercy region." -Importer

It was in about 1895 that Antonin Ressès inheriled the Domaine du Château la Caminade. This place is full of history, since, until the French Révolution, it belonged to the clergy. The monks knew how to choose the best soils with care and, in those days, used to produce the very best wines. Antonin and his son Marcel spent their lives rebuilding and enlarging the Domaine. In 1973, immediately after Cahors was awarded A.O.C. status (1971), Marcel and his son Léonce decided to market the whole of their production in bottle. The Château la Caminade soon won recognition as one of the standard setters of the appellation, and this success was borne out by the award of numerous medals and favourable mentions in the Hachette guide. "One of the best Cahors of the decade ", according to Pierre Casamayor, author of the book "Vignes et Vignerons du Soleil" and journalist on the "Revue des Vins de France". Today, Léonce and his sons, Dominique and Richard, run a domain of 35 hectares. The family tradition (fourth génération), the exceptional situation of the vineyard and a permanent calling into question ofthe opération combine to give rise toone of the finest jewels in the Cahors crown.
