Château La Coustarelle is located on the right bank of the Lot river near the village of Prayssac at the lieu-dit “Les Caris”, situated about 20 kilometres west of the village Cahors. The domain’s origin dates back to 1870 when Paul Cassot settled in the area as a farmer. The farm was renamed Château La Coustarelle in 1947 by Pierre Cassot  representing the 3rd generation. The château was named after the first parcel of vines planted at the lieu-dit “Coustarelle” meaning little slope “petit côteau” in old French. In 1980, Michel Cassot took over the running of the estate from his father Pierre with the help of his wife Nadine, making him the 4th generation on the estate.

The color, purple and very intense, foreshadows the richness of the wine; indeed, the powerful nose evokes black fruits (cherry, blackberry, blackcurrant), enhanced with a fresher hint of menthol. Subsequently, the mouth, full and fresh, allows the return of this complex aromatic palette, supported by tight tannins and a very fair acidity.

Food Match: A perfect marriage awaits you with rich dishes such as terrines or pâtés en croûtes, red meats, hunting and cheeses!
