Chateau Famaey Cuvee X is inky dark, almost black in colour. The nose has plenty of complex, toasty oak mingling with rich aromas of red and black berry fruit and a dusting of sweet spice. The palate is rich with blackberry fruit and perfumed floral notes of violets. It is meaty and chewy thanks to its velvet-coated tannins and a bright level of acidity keeps everything perfectly in check. Cuvée X is well worth cellaring, although we're first to admit that it's difficult to keep your hands off it now!

Cuvée X is Château Famaey's top Cahors, made from old Malbec vines growing on the second and third terraces of the Lot Valley. These low yielding vines are tended meticulously and the grapes are picked by hand for the most delicate handling possible. After fermentation, it matures in 255 litre new French oak barriques for two years resulting in a full-bodied, darkly fruited wine with a complexity enhanced by the sweet richness of wood. A very contemporary expression of a classic wine.
