Château Haut-Monplaisir is a twenty-eight hectare estate owned by Cathy and Daniel Fournié. Cathy inherited it from her father, who had sold all the wine off to négociants. On taking over in 1998, however, she and Daniel decided to aim for top quality, and bottle at the château. Pascal Verhaeghe, a successful Cahors producer in his own right, has endorsed the Fourniés’ belief in their excellent terroir from the beginning, and still consults at the estate.
