Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The vineyards are planted on a sunny, south-facing limestone plateau at an altitude of 250 meters. The vineyards make up 55 hectares of vines in production (137 acres).
Production Notes
All the estate's wines have been certified organic since the 2020 vintage. They are committed to leaving a sustainable and ecologically friendly estate for their next generation. They vinify all red wines without sulfites which represents 1300 hL; they age thier wines in terracotta jars, barrels and stainless steel. All the grapes are harvested and vinified separately, which allows the unique terroir to fully express itself.
Winemaker Notes
The remarkable wines of this family domaine are the result of five generations of winemaking wisdom. Founded in 1918 with five hectares of vines, the estate flourished as each successive generation ushered in growth and improvements. Today, Domaine Cailhol Gautran is a thriving domaine of 55 hectares.
