Cahors


CHÂTEAU ROUFFIAC & CHÂTEAU BOVILA

Since 2001, both family estates are run by the two brothers Olivier and Pascal Pieron.

They have been very involved in the qualitative development and the global revival of the Cahors appellation.
Conscious of the wealth of their lands they manage to develop exceptional wines, with remarkable regularity.

The vines (40 hectares in Rouffiac and 20 hectares in Bovila) are situated on one of the best terroir of the appellation, perfect to let the Malbec express itself.
