The estate Les Roques de Cana is located on the clayey-limestone and ferruginous soils of the Causse de Saint-Vincent Rive d'Olt, a village dedicated to the patron saint of winegrowers. Aged 30 years on average, the vines draw their minerality from a clayey, calcareous and ferriguous soil, and benefit from a south-facing exposure. A thinning out of the leaves on the rising sun side allows them to fully ripen their bunches while remaining protected from the burning sun on the afternoons at the end of ripening. The Roques de Cana terroir is characterised by a clay and limestone soil which, depending on the parcels, combines red and yellow clays with flowering soil. This allows the rootlets to give a great minerality and an extraordinary freshness to the different wines of the Domaine. Finally, there are ferruginous plants in large but very balanced quantities, which allows the development of spice aromas which, while being very present, never outweigh an opulent and quite unique fruit in the "Cahors" Appellation.
After a few years of work, I wanted to come back to my childhood region to make my dream come true. To make a wine, a great wine, my wine. For this reason, I, along with many other wine enthusiasts, took over a wine estate in the "Cahors" appellation. Being a winegrower is the possibility of being able to convey a message through our wines. Year after year, we want to reflect this terroir and its particularities in our vintages, while yields and maturity are controlled by de-stemming in spring and harvesting twice in green in summer. Today, the estate is the symbol of this quest for excellence.
The Domaine practices sustainable cultivation. This method controls and reduces the use of fertilizers and treatment chemicals. While pursuing a growing biological and ecological objective, this method does not alter the quality of the wines and on the contrary, it ensures them an optimum quality, both in terms of hygiene and taste.
To ensure the development of this exceptional terroir, Domaine Les Roques de Cana has equipped itself, from the outset, with some of the most sophisticated technical winemaking tools: open stainless steel tanks, instant cold hot and cold system connected to all the tanks, two ramps of Robots pigeurs above each of the tanks, vibrating conquet, sorting table, clickers, micro-bullders.This equipment guarantees the homogeneity of our production from one year to the next and the preservation of the values of our wine, which are finesse, freshness and elegance. My model is a Burgundian winegrower: Mr Henri Jayer. I still remember my first harvest during my adolescence, a timeless memory.
