Fruit, fine tannins and good length on the palate make this one of the rare Cahors that can be drunk right from its early years as well as after lengthy aging. The ‘terroir’ here transforms the Malbec grape into a very noble vintage.
Region: Cahors, France
Grape: Malbec (90%), Merlot (7%), Tannat (3%)
Tasting Notes: Very dark color with carmine highlights and a wonderfully complex and powerful bouquet of morello cherry, blackcurrant, and spices. The freshness and fruitiness on the nose carry over beautifully to the palate, which has a long, silky aftertaste.
Food Pairings: Perfect on a roasted meat like T-bone, it goes also very well with mighty French cheeses and dark chocolate.
