(46) Lot

10 minutes from Cahors, Domaine le Passelys extends over 8 hectares on the 5th clay and siliceous terraces of the Lot. The majority of the vineyard is located in one of the best terroirs of the AOC Appellation, a terroir favourable to the production of the great wine for ageing. 80% of the vines in the vineyard are Malbec and 20% Merlot. The harvest, partly by hand, represents the desire to perpetuate the family tradition, by allowing an "intact" and "selected" grape to be transported to the winery, as well as stricter control of the harvest. wishing to obtain a quality wine and in a concern for the environment, Thierry Baudel practices "integrated viticulture" (minimum treatments) in his vineyard in order to obtain more "natural" wines, giving priority to quality and environmental protection

Our story

We have taken over the family estate for more than 30 years, succeeding more than 8 generations of winegrowers. We have therefore naturally combined ancestral tradition with the most modern winemaking methods, as we are constantly looking for quality and are committed to developing our production towards more and more "natural" products that respect the environment.Not wanting to be satisfied with making wines from Cahors, red wine of course, Black Wine for others, we wanted to offer new bottles, such as Rosés, Blancs Secs and Moelleux to our loyal customers who have appreciated the diversity of our range, whose wines are regularly rewarded in the most prestigious National Competitions

Other little stories

"Le Passelys"The origin of the name "Passelys" was told to us by our grandparents and we are therefore giving you their version which seems to be the right one. It was a smooth passage or lily on the rock, in our case on the river Lot, which allowed the barges transporting the wine to Bordeaux to pass, despite the low water level, without any risk of breaking. This passelys saved the authorities in charge of the river from having to build a lock, but during the high floods, the salmon, which were abundant in the Lot at the beginning of the 20th century, used to come up the same way... The ancestral cellar was located at the foot of one of the few existing passelys on the Lot...
