Wine of Cahors appellation
Established in 1971, the Cahors appellation straddles the Lot River and stretches south onto the Causses du Quercy, to the west of its eponymous city, in the Lot department. The 4,000 hectares (9,884 acres) of vineyards here produce about 150,000 hectoliters of wine annually. 

The Lot Valley is divided into three terraces composed of alluvium from the Massif Central. The soils drain increasingly well as you climb the hillsides. The lowest terrace, close to the river, gives supple, fruity wines. The second produces more fleshy wines. The third, along with limestone scree, yields the richest and longest-aging wines. Finally, some of the most renowned Cahors wines come from the rare high vineyards planted on Quaternary alluvium over rocks that have resisted erosion. The oceanic climate is mitigated by the influence of the Mediterranean. 

Cahors is a red wine made from the local Malbec, either alone or with up to 30% Merlot and/or Tannat. These grapes reveal their full character in the wines of Château du Cèdre, Château Croze de Pys, Château La Reyne, Domaine Cosse Maisonneuve, and Château Lamartine.
