Clos la Coutale wine is produced from Malbec and Merlot grapes. The yield is on average 45hl/ha which enables good maturation and regular quality over the years. Vinification is carried out in thermo-controlled vats, and regular ”pigeages’’ (breaking-up of the layer formed on top of the juice) both ensure maximum extraction of the ”bouquet” and the fruit. Clos la Coutale is then elaborated in oak barrels to obtain a full balance between the tannins and the fruit.
Producer
The Clos La Coutale, a 60 hectares estate spreads over a stretch of land on the alluvial floor of the valley amid the meanders of the river Lot. Its soil is particulary suitable for vines, for it contains gravels, silicates and limestone clays. Because of the lie of the land, facing south-west, the estate is sheltered from the cold winds that blow from the ”Causse” region (an upland plateau), and consequently it enjoys a micro-climate which ensures that the vines and their fruit ripen fully early in the season. The vine-plants belong to the two types that are traditionnaly used in the making of the Cahors wine : COT or MALBEC. This is the basic vin-plant, 80%. Its round grapes, their thick skin, rich in colouring matter and in tanin, lend character to this laying-down wine. Merlot. Up to 20%, it tones down the youthful hardness of Cahors wine, and it improves the bouquet
