CHATEAU FAMAEY

CHATEAU FAMAEYChâteau Famaey is a family company which works in a traditional spirit, combined with a modern infrastructure. The work of the vine and the maturing of the wine, guided by a philosophy based on the respect of nature, limit to the maximum the use of chemical additives to obtain the most natural possible wine. The setting out of bottle with the castle, in the respect of the soil, guarantees the authenticity of these single wines, with the excellent quality-price ratio.
The soil is worked with a maximum of respect for nature in order to obtain the most natural possible product.
The wine making is managed by our cellar master, Maarten Luyckx, who works in collaboration with a certified oenological laboratory. The maceration can vary according to our various vintages. The infrastructure is equipped with a thermoregulation system allowing us to control the temperature during this delicate phase. The wines thus obtained will be then directed towards our wine storehouse of storage to be, either matured in tanks envisaged for this purpose, or matured in barrels. We can store three harvests, times necessary to a good maturing for our Cahors A.O.C. certified wine. At least 40% of our Cahors wines are matured in oak barrels for a period of 12 to 24 months. The cellar has around 200 barrels of French oak selected at the best tonneliers (specialist hand-made oak barrel makers). Every year, a large part of the barrels is replaced with new ones.
Cahors X, resulting from manual grape harvest, matured 24 months out of new barrels of oak with 70%, is a wine of intense color, with the spiced nuances, dense, all harmonizes some, rich with the nose with these notes of blackberry and humus, and the nuances of leather and prune in mouth. Cahors Malbec, of garnet-red color, with tannins quite present, rich in aromas, intense at the nose as in mouth, but all in roundness is concentrated.
