Château de Lascaux

Jean Benoît Cavalier took over the family owned Château de Lascaux in the sleepy village of Vacquières in 1984 and started replanting with Syrah and Grenache. Named Lascaux after the stones in the vineyards, his terroir is composed of pebbly soil ‘cailloutis’. He, like the other vignerons, revels in the location of his vineyards with a genuine passion for and special bond with his environment. He still produces his wine in the Château’s 12th and 13th century caves althought the domain has been in a state of evolution over the past few years and now has modern, state of the art wine making equipment.

Aromatic nose of dark, ripe fruit, liquorice, and garrigue herbs. Plenty of spicy, round and succulent Syrah fruit together with spice and menthol notes on the palate. Smooth tannins with a long and round finish.
