Château Haut Monplaisir

Nestled at the very heart of the Cahors appellation in the enchanting South-West of France, Château Haut-Monplaisir invites you to a world where the historic paths of the celebrated Malbec grape variety whisper tales of the land. It's a place where rare and intense pleasures await. Back in 1998, the Fourni family breathed new life into this 15-hectare family legacy. Their journey was one of exploration, a quest to intimately grasp their terroirs, unlock the secrets concealed in their soils, and reveal the true essence of their precious fruits. While remaining independent, they forged a profound collaboration with Pascal and Jean-Marc Verhaeghe, two of the world's foremost "Malbec creators." Together, they embarked on a mission to infuse tradition with innovation, producing wines that pay homage to the past while embracing the promise of the future. Château Haut-Monplaisir stands as a testament to the art of preserving heritage and embracing the thrill of discovery.
