Bouyssou Bernard

Parnac, at the end of the 1990’s: Bernard Bouyssou, son and grandson of cooperative members, dreamt of producing and selling is own wine himself.
2 more profession to learn: oenology and business. At least, one thing he was sure about, he knows his vineyard, all essentially planted of Malbec, main grape variety of Cahors region.
His philosophy "1grape variety Malbec, different terraces, different Cahors”.
He knows everything about Malbec, and he owns few terroirs. That’s how, in 1998 in took the big step and built his winery.

His first cuvee “Diamant Rouge” (Red Diamond), will quickly become a success.“I really started to worry when the time came to sell it. Now, the other thing I’m worried about is to not be able to supply all the market we have opened”.
In addition to his cuvee AOP CAHORS, Bernard also produces white wine from the Chenin’s grape (variety which have growned in this area a long time ago), a rosé wine made of Malbec as well as an aperitif (kind of Porto) that he leaves in barrels, in the sun during the summer.
“I love fleshy wines with volume and ripe tannins.”
After all the process of production & vinification, I kept going on with business and started to travel to find export’s market.“You can only make business by meeting with people, we cannot sell just by sending out e-mails.”
Bernard is the 4th generation to follow in the footsteps of the “Armandière” line of his family, in memory of his grand father “Armand”.

It all started in the 18th century with boats transporting Cahors wine to Bordeaux.
Indeed, the property being situated in “Port de l’Angle” from where the boats were departing helped the business develop quickly for the Bouyssou family. This was the beginning of a new age…
For more than 40 years, Bernard’s father Pierre took care of the vineyard. Since then Bernard has continued with improvements and now operates using sustainable & controlled agriculture equipment for his 25 hectares of vines, essentially planted of MALBEC.
Each vintage is related to a specific soil, which provides a different yield and flavour.
