About the domain:
Clos D'Audhuy is located in the west part of the AOC Cahors, in the village of Lacapelle-Cabanac. Today the estate counts 6 hectars under the direction of Benoit Aymard, third generation winemaker. Benoit only uses organic practices in the vineyard.
Vineyards sit between 150-260meters above sea level; they are planted on an alluvial and gravel terrace rising from the Lot River, and on the plateau (or causse) above the terrace, where the limestone bedrock is covered by only a thin layer of soil.
Benoit Aymard is part of the new generation of winemakers in Cahors who put their focus on terroir, their goal being to showcase the expression of Malbec on various soils in Cahors.
