Overlooking our pretty village, Château Ponzac is run by a young couple of winegrowers from the Cahors appellation. Tasting at home is simply an event, as the speech is well kept.
The visit begins with the cellar where Matthieu speaks of the estate, the terroir and the wine, he is insatiable on the history of the vineyard of Cahors. A set of questions and answers begins and continues in the tasting room, where we have the pleasure of discovering the "trilogy" of the reds, from crisp red fruits to more elaborate and concentrated epicurean wines.
More confidential, Côt en Dolia, raised in a jar, natural and delivered to itself, the wine is flavor of fresh fruit, the power becomes length in the mouth, the aromas are those of the grapes that one crunches.
An excellent rosé, with a deep pink color, presented as a gastronomic wine, completes the range of wines from the Malbec grape variety.
For lovers of chenin blanc, it will be necessary to wait for the year 2018 because the strong frost of last spring was right of the buds of this grape variety.
All our holidaymakers, whether they are amateurs or not-initiated to the culture of the wine, come back delighted by this oenological moment. When we decide to go to tasting at Matthieu, we take the time, on average it lasts between 1 and 1:30 and each time, a moment of pure pleasure!
