Upstream from Bordeaux along the Garonne River lie the vineyards of Buzet, just north of Armagnac and southwest of Cahors. Buzet was recognized as an Appellation in 1973, as its clay limestone soils are ideal for Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Christophe tends to these vines with the utmost respect for biodiversity of the terroir and this cuvée is vinified without oak.
Concentrated cherries and red fruits give way to silky, velvety tannins. A versatile food wine, pairs beautifully with game and red meats, or perhaps alongside a rich cassoulet - a famed dish of the area.
