A star estate in the Cadurcien vineyard, acquired in 1985 by businessman Alain-Dominique Perrin (Cartier).

The Dame Honneur cuvée is a demanding selection of the best plots. The result is spectacular and gives all its letters of nobility to the Malbec grape. A wine for aging, it can age and improve for more than 20 years. The Cuvée Dame Honneur draws its aromas from the oldest vines of the Domaine, planted on the third terraces of the Lot and on the Causse. The very delicate berries are harvested and sorted by hand. After vinification, the cuvée is aged for 24 months in new oak barrels, before being blended by winemaker Michel Rolland, then bottled at the Château.
