LOUIS & CHARLOTTE PÉROT
In 2015, the Pérots left Paris and bought a house and winery in Cahors. After spending time with local legend, Simon Busser (another Terroirizer favorite!), learning how to work the soil and gaining an understanding of the subtleties of the local grapes, they began to make their own wine.
Their 2 hectares of vines are split into two plots of quite different terroirs: sand and clay at Duravel and at Prayssac a mix of limestone, red clay, and sandstone on the terraces above the Lot. Both plots are planted with Merlot and Malbec. Their winery is a cave dug into the limestone rock near their house where temperatures are perfect for aging their wines. From the beginning, the Pérots have worked their soils with respect and extended that to the fermentation and aging of their wines. The result is something special that really speaks of the detail of their soils and the skill of their winemaking. Such progress in a small amount of time!
Cieux is a blend of Merlot and Malbec, aged in old barrels. The Merlot is destemmed and the Malbec is fermented whole cluster, with a touch of semi-carbonic maceration approach. Medium-bodied, with black fruit from the Malbec and silky red fruits from the Merlot. Supple, with soft tannins and natural lift.
