And to finish your meal, why not try a Gâteau à la broche (spit-roast cake) or Pastis gascon, with its extremely delicate layers of raised puff pastry? In the summer months, the sweet melons of Quercy and Lectoure provide a refreshing alternative.
Manoir Les Gaillardoux is located in an area of over 10,000 acres of vineyards and wineries producing locally grown wines from pure Malbec grape or blended with other varieties such as Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, which are the main components of the best Bordeaux wines. We are fortunate to have a huge choice ranging from inexpensive Coteaux de Quercy vineyards to the very best Appellation Controlée from Clos Triguedina, as selected for and served to President Macron at the Elysée Palace.
There are at least 120 vineyards along the Lot valley from Cahors to Puy L’Eveque and further west towards Bergerac. Many vignerons welcome visitors to taste their wines and learn how they are made. The individuality of each wine depends on the land, the weather and the style determined by the winemaker.
At Manoir Les Gaillardoux, we organise gastronomic dinners and wine tasting at our tables d’hotes. A special treat is a black wine produced by recreating a 12th century methodology used when Cahors wines were exported to England for Eleonor of Aquitaine and her husband Henry II.
