About Probus Cuvée Prestige
In the year 96 of our era, the Emperor Domitian made tear off the vine to the profit of the culture of the wheat. It was in the 3rd century that the Emperor Probus had the vine replanted in the Quercy. It is to pay homage to him that Jean, the father of Jean-Luc Baldès, created in 1976 this top-of-the-range vintage of the Cahors appellation.
The terroir of this selection comes from the 3rd terrace of the domain, where the soils are both clay-siliceous and clay-limestone. The vines are 100 years old, which gives them an exceptional quality.
On the environmental level, the vines are worked with the greatest care in respect of eco-responsibility and soil preservation. The vinification is also rigorous.
The wine is aged in new oak barrels for 12 months, then tasted and selected from the best barrels.
