Château Eugénie is the end result of a long lineage of winemakers. According to departmental records, the first traces of winegrowing dates back to 1470 when the Couture winegrowers served the Lord of Albas. It was our great-great-grand-mother, Eugénie, who offered her name to the property. Thanks to centuries of tradition and know-how acquired from father to son, combined with modern winemaking techniques, the Couture family can now offer you its fine Cahors wines. Situated in the heart of Cahors vineyards, the vines of Château Eugénie symbolize perfect harmony between nature and wine with an ideal location on the best terroirs of the appellation. Planted on the mid-slopes and the slopes of the Causse on the terraces of the Lot valley, the vines benefit from exceptional sunshine. To help you discover the distinctive features of these terroirs, the Couture family has developed a wide range of wines by creating adapted blends made up of the three grape varieties authorized under the Cahors AOC: Malbec, Merlot and Tannat. Château Eugénie also produces Côtes du Lot IGP wines in white, rosé and red. Our vines are grown in an environmentally responsible manner. To control soil erosion, most of our parcels are worked according to the principles of controlled natural sodding and reasoned culture. After a season of loving care, the grapes are harvested in September and October and are vinified separately by soil and variety. After a long maceration, the wines are matured in vats and barrels for several months, where they are pampered by the winemaker before bottling. Finally, when they join your table for your enjoyment, they reveal all their charms.
