Château Famaey Cahors Prestige 2016


Chateau Famaey Cahors Eleve En Fut De Chene is ark and alluring, both to look at and to smell, with spicy, dark fruit and subtle notes of vanilla oak. Rich and well rounded on the palate with bags of ripe fruit; smokey, woody and leathery notes; suggestions of liquorice and forest floor, all of which contribute to the body and complexity of this Cahors. A full bodied, juicy mouthful with plenty of ripe tannins to support everything. You could drink this now or you can easily cellar it for several years and watch it evolve.

In this cuvée, Château Famaey's love of modernity really starts to shine through as the top quality Malbec juice is fermented in stainless steel before being transferred into French oak barriques to mature. Depending upon the character of the vintage, the Cahors Elevé en Fût de Chène spends between 14 and 18 months in oak, of which 30% is new.
