Château du Cayrou sits at the bottom of one of the Lot river’s deep bends near the town
of Puy l’Évèque. This is storied terroir that has produced some of the most compelling Cahors wine of the past decades. The estate is currently run by Julien Gousard, whose father in law, Georges Douin, purchased it from the Jouffreau family (of Clos de Gamot) in 2009.
