Cahors has been an established winemaking area for centuries and a latin manuscript dating from 1456 shows that the Burc family were already land owners around Cahors at that time. 5th generation vigneron, Jean Luc Burc now shares the running of this 50 hectare estate near Puy-l'Eveque with his daughters Anne and Emmanuelle. They produce individual characterful wines from their various vineyard parcels which encompass all the classic terroirs of the region including the renowned terraces of the Lot. The estate is carefully managed according to the principles of "lutte raisonneé.
